Celebrating music from the first decade of the 21st century
October 27-30, 2010

Discover the sound of new classical music at Livewire, a festival assured to stretch
your ears and mind with bold compositions from the 21st Century, from striking to
experimental to edgy. In dozens of concerts, lecture-recitals and presentations,
the musicians of Livewire will explore untrodden paths as they premiere, perform
and discuss new works from around the world created during the first decade of
the new millennium, a period of both political and economic upheaval.

Join us for performances by the Ruckus ensemble, the Damocles Trio, the
Hoffmann/Goldstein Duo, the Synchronous Trio, UMBC faculty Matthew Belzer,
Lisa Cella, Tom Goldstein, Gita Ladd, Maria Lambros, E. Michael Richards, and Airi
Yoshioka, and many other eminent ensembles and soloists.
