Until 5 April & 6-8 June
A major festival of music celebrating the experimental sounds and cultures of downtown New York and Birmingham.
Presented by Birmingham Conservatoire and Third Ear, Frontiers Festival looks to the collaborative and go-it-alone traditions of New York and the sounds, ideas and iconic moments hailing from that city which have fuelled music culture. Birmingham’s own vibrant music scene, with its strong young voices and bold new work, adds to the programme.
As well as group performances encompassing post-punk and jazz to new composition, visitors can expect performance art, exhibitions and cutting edge technology, including a real time networked improvisation encompassing two continents.
