Vox Novus Festival - 15 Years of New Music

Vox Novus has 15 years producing, presenting and promoting new music. Founded by composer Robert Voisey, Vox Novus uses a “maximalist” approach introducing new work to audiences everywhere.

With a spirit of discovery, Vox Novus uses its concert programs to empower thousands of composers and musicians in 40 countries on 5 continents. For more than a decade, Vox Novus has commissioned and premiered the works of composers around the world from every walk of life with different aesthetics, styles, and career stages. Vox Novus always embraces an ideology of presenting a broad cross-section of the great wealth of contemporary music being written today.

Endeavoring to reach the largest audience, Vox Novus has presented over 500 performances across the planet. Highlight presentations include Carnegie Hall, Stratford Circus for Open Weekend for 2012 Olympics, Winter Garden Atrium, Enwave Theater in Toronto, St Louis Sheldon Theater for the American Arts Experience, Dance Parade in Tompkins Park, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

Vox Novus brings its programming approach to common and untraditional venues alike focusing on reaching audiences with dynamic presentation practices. Performances have been presented in various types of venues from concert halls to classrooms; from contemporary museums to art galleries; from projections on building walls to installations in storefront windows; from large public atriums to bars and nightclubs. Vox Novus has presented its performances on TV, radio, Internet, film, video, festivals, concert performances, bar/nightclub happenings and sound/art installations.

Vox Novus believes strongly in the intrinsic value of contemporary music, recognizing it as a force in the advancement of culture and art. Our goal is to keep music alive by strengthening the connection between composer and audience, providing greater exposure to new music.

Vox Novus is celebrating with a festival of performances from its Composer’s Voice, 60x60, Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame, Circuit Bridges, and xMV performance programs.

New Music for the 21st Century


The biggest asset Vox Novus has always had is the power of the people! Without the directors, staff, composers. musicians, performers, artists, and most importantly our audiences, Vox Novus would not be able to do the work we do. Vox Novus wants to continue its mission presenting and promoting new music and the people who create it.


The vox Novus Festival is a great rally point to let the public know that new music is relevant and that the new music community deserves support.
All we need you to do is talk up Vox Novus, the festival, and its programs 60x60, Composer's Voice, Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame, Circuit Bridges, xMV, Composers' Site, Music Avatar, the American Composer Timeline, etc
If you have ever benefited from Vox Novus in the past, this is the time to give us a "shout out," "like," "mention," and tell people Vox Novus is "on fleek!"

Numbers matter, the more people we have talking about Vox Novus on social media the more Vox Nvous will have the strength to continue to present new music in venues like the Winter Garden.
