Open Source Music Festival: lineup & tix


The Open Source Music Festival happens November 16-18, 2017 at the Abrons Arts Center in NYC and takes its inspiration from the collaborations and connections between artists:

The groundbreaking event explores the phenomenon of Open Source through a musical lens. The innovative programming features Artistic Director, pianist Joel Fan, performing the world premieres of new piano works commissioned by an award-winning group of composers – four men, and four women – paired in collaboration. Joining him in performances throughout the festival is an impressive lineup of world-renowned performers and innovative ensembles, performing contemporary classical, jazz, and electronic music.

The centerpiece of the festival is an all-day concert on November 18 featuring performances by Artistic Director Joel Fan, plus JACK Quartet, TIGUE, Jeffrey Ziegler, Teen Girl Fantasy + ADR, Ben Monder, and more. Tickets are on sale now and you can check out the full lineup and schedule for the Open Source Music Festival, plus watch a promotional video about the fest, below.
