Spearheaded by Augusta Read Thomas, the 2016 Ear Taxi Festival - October 5-10, 2016 - is a celebration of Chicago’s thriving contemporary music scene with concerts, lectures, marathons, webcasts and artist receptions featuring New Music Chicago and New Music USA. Co-curated by conductor Stephen Burns and a curatorial committee of Chicago’s leading artists and intellectuals, the festival is a joy-ride through Chicago’s new music scene. From Mana Contemporary and the University of Chicago on the South side to the Harris Theater for Music and Dance and The Chicago Cultural Center in the Loop, to Constellation on the North side, the whole city will be humming with the sounds of creativity and innovation.

“We want to take your ears on a wide variety of ‘taxi rides’ through the world of contemporary music. At every concert, you’ll hear a mix of ensembles and musical styles that reflects the incredible depth and breadth of new music both here in Chicago and beyond.” -- Augusta Read Thomas, Ear Taxi Festival Co-Curator
