The 2021 Progressive Chamber Music Festival

Source: Sirius Quartet Presents: The 2021 Progressive Chamber Music Festival.

For the 5th consecutive year, The Progressive Chamber Music Festival, curated by Sirius Quartet, features 6 such ensembles, each with unique identities and a shared desire to define chamber music on their own terms. After a tumultuous 2020 which saw the festival, like many others, assume an online form with minimal technical and financial support, The Progressive Chamber Music Festival has returned stronger than ever, featuring NYC heavyweights such as Billy Martin and Mat Maneri alongside younger torch-bearers like Curtis Stewart, Leonor Falcon and Juanma Trujillo. The festival is spread across two days in late October at The Garage in Harlem, and it will once again put NYC’s vibrant and eclectic music scene on full display. These are chamber music ensembles of the 21st century, not defined by genre, nor limited by the distinction between concert and popular music, and blurring the lines between performer, composer, and improviser. This is Progressive Chamber Music.
