The Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents its acclaimed MusicNOW contemporary music series, dedicated to showcasing contemporary music through an innovative concert experience. Curated by CSO Mead Composers-In-Residence Samuel Adams and Elizabeth Ogonek, the annual four-concert series presents work from established contemporary composers and new voices beginning to emerge across today’s active and varied contemporary music scene.

Composers Adams and Ogonek stated, “As young artists, we see our residency with the CSO as a wonderful opportunity to showcase the breadth of creativity, inventiveness and originality of today’s up-and-coming musical voices. Through four conceptually constructed evenings, our season traverses an extraordinarily broad musical landscape.
