New Music Raleigh is dedicated to presenting outstanding performances of music by living composers. NMR fills a gap in Raleigh’s vibrant music scene, serving as a catalyst for creation and presentation of new music. Whether its through offering works of well-established composers, up-and-coming composers, or cross-genre collaborations, NMR creates concert experiences that challenge tradition, engage and inspire diverse audiences, and give voice to today’s most innovative and relevant modern music.

NMR was presented the INDY Arts Award in 2013 in recognition for its contributions to the community and commitment to the growth of the arts in Raleigh. NMR’s programs are facilitated by its Co-Curators Shawn Galvin and Karen Strittmatter Galvin with support from a team of volunteers and its fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas.
