Hello, Fellow Travelers. 

Over the years, the local and international collaborations that Dal Niente has engaged in with like-minded souls have broadened our imagination for new sounds, new modes of performance, and new ways of looking at the world. Across place and time and culture there are some people and organizations that we feel like we share things in common with, tangible or not. And we want to share that with you. This season, we walk old paths and forge new ones with some of our most treasured and admired collaborators and associates, from across the United States, Europe, and Latin America. From long-standing creative partners like George Lewis, Erin Gee, Igor Santos, Alican Çamci, Tim Page, Kyong Mee Choi, and Ted Hearne, to composers we have always loved but are getting to know better, like Roscoe Mitchell, Hilda Paredes, Bethany Younge, Nur Slim, and Carola Bauckholt, we are excited to explore, expand on, and create music with a delightful array of treasured composers, presenters, and fellow performers. This season, we invite you to travel with us.

Upcoming Events

Commissioning new work from living composers offers our audience a direct line into the present tense of the composer’s mind.
