New Music Raleigh, founded in 2009, has become “the Southeast’s most plugged-in musical collective devoted to the work of living composers.” (Indy Week) NMR presents cutting-edge new works and collaborations that challenge the traditional perception of classical music, engage and inspire diverse audiences, and give voice to today’s most innovative and relevant modern music. Equal parts performer, presenter, and advocate, NMR has created unique events for the National Gallery of Art, Duke Performances, the North Carolina Symphony, CAM Raleigh and the North Carolina Opera.

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 through its fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas.
