113, a collection of composers and performers of new music, curates concerts, seminars, and master classes throughout the Twin Cities. Through ambitious programming, community building, educational outreach, and emphasis on extensive interaction between composers and performers that greatly exceeds the industry standard, 113 provides a platform for musicians pursuing bold, personalized artistic visions, and helps them to transmit those visions as directly and honestly as possible to a receptive audience, unfettered by university politics, market pressures, or established conventions.
Since its inception in 2012, 113 has presented over forty-five world premieres and worked with composers and performers such as James Dillon, Brian Ferneyhough, Chaya Czernowin, Michael Pisaro, Duo Gelland, Bill Solomon, Collect/Project, Julio Estrada, and Marcelo Rilla, in addition to dozens of local musicians of the highest caliber.
Our 2016-2017 programming season includes concerts of new music and residencies by internationally-acclaimed composers and musicians including Duo Gelland, Bill Solomon, Mike Truesdell, Anthony Cheung, and Fonema Consort, in addition to local ensembles such as the Strains New Music Ensemble and the Gregorian Singers.
