15 – 24 November 2019
hcmf// is an annual, international festival of contemporary and new music, taking place over 10 days and consisting of approximately 50 events – including concerts, music-theatre, dance, multi-media, talks and film – with a related Learning and Participation programme devised and implemented to reflect the artistic programme and respond to regional need.
hcmf// aims to provide life-changing and unique artistic experiences to as wide an audience as possible; to be an international platform for new music and related contemporary art forms in Britain; to enthuse existing audiences and draw in new ones through adventurous programming and informed, stylish presentation, and to be an active cultural partner within the region.
The fruitful cooperation between the Goethe-Institut and hcmf// started 12 years ago, and over time numerous composers, musicians and multidisciplinary artists from Germany have found their way to the North of England.
The Goethe-Institut London is delighted to be supporting the German programme at hcmf//2019.
