May 27 - June 7, 2014
The nief-norf Summer Festival (nnSF) is an interdisciplinary summer music festival, bringing together dozens of performers, composers, and scholars to collaborate on the performance, creation, and discussion of contemporary solo and chamber music. The nnSF offers a think-tank environment and presents inspiring and devoted performances of modern music, aiming to encourage both appreciation and support for live music and contemporary art. Performances are open to the public. View schedule at www.niefnorf.org.
The festival is delighted to have a full-time performance and composition faculty host workshops lasting the duration of the festival. In addition to performance, each year the nnSF hosts two international calls for projects supporting contemporary thought: the first, a Call for Papers for a weekend-long contemporary music Research Summit (nnRS), and the second, a Call for Scores competition for composers. These projects bring some of our generation's brightest and most promising composers and scholars to the festival for interaction with the performance & composition fellows, the faculty, and the community. Applicants to the Composition Workshop may also submit works to the Call for Scores.
Furman is the host school and maintains the application web forms, but details for the Summer Festival, including fees and links to the applications, are available at www.niefnorf.org. Must be age 18 by May 1.
