    The 2010 Festival of Contemporary Music will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the TMC, and the seven decades of great composers who have led and taken a major role in its composition program, teaching the next generation of composers and inspiring the next generation of performers. Programmed by the three living composers who have chaired the composition activities at the TMC – Gunther Schuller, Oliver Knussen, and John Harbison – the Festival will feature works by these three composers as well as by some of the great figures of both the early and recent years: starting with Copland and Hindemith, and continuing up to recent resident composers. In addition to the six concerts of the Festival itself works by the composers to be honored will appear on TMC concerts throughout the season.

    The 2010 Festival of Contemporary Music is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Raymond and Hannah H. Schneider, and through grants from the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Fromm Music Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Helen F. Whitaker Fund.
