New Music Virtual Town Hall Meeting: State of the Field

The new music community has taken a huge financial and emotional hit due to COVID-19. As a performing arts non-profit organization that employs many freelance musicians and navigates relationships between individual and institutional funders, the International Contemporary Ensemble would like to take a moment to gather together with the community and discuss the state of the field. How can we build coalitions to advocate for the arts sector nationwide? How can we all be resources for each other? How do artists shift from a live stage to a virtual one?

Du Yun

The Industry is offering a stream of Sweet Land by Raven Chacon and Du Yun beginning March 29. With cameras as the only audience, the ensemble came together for one final performance to preserve a new work. A modest on-demand fee will help The Industry survive this emergency, by making up lost box office income and allowing us to fully pay the artists and crew.
