We open with Phenomenological Love Songs, a collage / cabaret featuring three flamboyant soloists: Guy Few, Nadina Mackie-Jackson and Kimberly Barber joined by the Penderecki String Quartet along with a motley collection of jazz musicians. And we close with the big party, 25th Anniversary Celebrations - a NUMUS remount from our first season: all five of our former and current artistic directors performing Steve Reich’s masterpiece, Four Organs.

And in between, everything from Andrew Downing’s new score for the iconic silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, through the sublime Berlin Mass by Arvo Pärt, Cathedral and Candlelight, to our theatrical study of musical modernism, Old Modernists/New Modernists, which features music by the godfathers of the new music scene: Arnold Schönberg, Anton Webern and György Ligeti.

We throw in a full evening tribute to Tim Brady’s 20th-century heroes, My Twentieth Century (including John Lennon and Dmitri Schostakovitch), blend with some of KW’s most brilliant musicians, bake at a feverish tempo, and top with 25 candles, each representing a year of exciting new music events.

The NUMUS website has received a major overhaul and redesign for the new 2009/2010 season! Check out the new 09/10 Season to see the line up for next year.
