Festival of Contemporary Artists in Music Schedule of Events

This festival has been a long tradition at WSU and celebrates new works and the dedication to performances of these works. Previously known as the Festival of Contemporary Art Music, WSU is committed to broadening our vision of inclusionary music, performers, and collaborations.
