AboutThe Thin Edge New Music Collective believes that contemporary music is a powerful medium which has the ability to comment and reflect on modern society in a unique and poignant way. We recognize that the broad range of musical idioms which new music encompasses functions as an important touchstone for contemporary life and as such are passionately dedicated to supporting our peers through commissions and performance. Ultimately we aspire to bring innovative and challenging 20th and 21st century music to audiences both existing and as yet untapped.
