DNMC: How the District makes New Music
District New Music Coalition promotes the performance and appreciation of contemporary music by connecting performers, composers, institutions, and audiences located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area through concerts, conferences, and active community-building. Read our full Mission Statement here.
Here on our website, you'll find links to DC-area ensembles and events, plus information about concerts & opportunities produced by DNMC and information about our contemporary music conference for Washington performers, composers, and other music professionals, New Music DC.
Creating new music — live and recorded — takes skill, collaboration, and business know-how: coming soon, brush up your music industry skills with our professional development resources, including tips on marketing and guidelines for commission fees. And stay in touch, both to let us know how we're doing and to suggest what kinds of events and resources would be most helpful to you!
