The University of Massachusetts Amherst Department of Music and Dance is proud to host the biannual Five College New Music Festival, a celebration of the rich musical life of the Pioneer Valley both past and present. The Festival includes nearly fifty performers and composers, primarily current and former faculty members but also a few members of our student community as well as the community at large. The festival is coordinated by Elizabeth Chang, Salvatore Macchia, and Eric Sawyer.
