3rd annual Frequency Festival
The Festival of Chicago’s New Music Series
presented by Constellation

ABOUT
Every Sunday evening Constellation hosts the Frequency Series, a sustained effort, programmed by Peter Margasak, to present the best of Chicago’s new music and experimental music – and to bring international and national artists making innovative concert music to Chicago.

For its third incarnation, the Frequency Festival has an all-star lineup at venues across the city. This year’s lineup presents a special focus on contemporary music from Canada, including the local premiere of Montreal’s acclaimed Quatour Bozzini. Cellist Seth Parker Woods will also present the first-ever Chicago portrait concert of the brilliant composer Julius Eastman.

LOCATIONS
Concerts will take place at Constellation Chicago (3111 N. Western Ave.), the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (220 E. Chicago Avenue), theThe Art Institute of Chicago (111 S. Michigan Avenue), and the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington Street).
