Lynn's music has been performed across America, Europe, and Asia, and she has garnered significant recognition, placing as a Finalist in the 2011 International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition and serving as Featured Guest Composer for the 9th Annual Woman Composers Festival at the Hartt School of Music. Join us on November 3 or 4 to experience the exhilarating synergy of Stravinsky and Lynn. More info is always available at

We did it!

Thanks to the wonderful support of modern music fans across Dallas, the state of Texas, and America, the Dallas Festival of Modern Music has successfully completed our 2011 Kickstarter fundraising campaign! Words cannot express how grateful we are to everyone who pitched in, but we will try with a huge THANK YOU! With your help, this year's festival will be the best yet!

Nicole Murphy

The Dallas Festival of Modern Music has a history of drawing on talent from across the world, and our involvement this year with composer Nicole Murphy is no different. An Australian composer of significant note, Murphy is the winner of multiple awards and has had her music performed by orchestras including the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and the Ku-ring-Gai Philharmonic. In addition, she has been commissioned by the Australian Ballet, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra Victoria to create new music.

On November 5 and 6, 2011, Ars Nova Dallas will be presenting a world premiere by Ms. Murphy, so make your plans to attend this amazing concert or any number of other fantastic offerings. More information is always available at
