Ecstatic Music Festival 2014

Saturday, March 1, 2014 through Saturday, March 29, 2014

Q2 Music is a media partner of the Ecstatic Music Festival, where classical music meets popular music January 31 to March 29, 2014, at Merkin Concert Hall.

Kaufman Music Center's Ecstatic Music Festival® returns this winter with more than 120 composers and performers from diverse musical backgrounds coming together for 11 original collaborative performances. The festival's musicians – soloists, bands, chamber ensembles, orchestras and everything in between – hail from diverse musical backgrounds, representing a contemporary culture in which the incorporation of many different influences is the norm, not the exception. The festival offers the opportunity for some of today's  musicians to work together in  new combinations, allowing them to branch out in unexpected directions and explore the terrain between classical and popular music.
