If you thought you loved SICPP before, check out this year’s evening programming!

The Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice (aka SICPP aka “Sick Puppy”) is an intensive music festival held each June at New England Conservatory. Passionate new music performers, composers, presenters, and advocates converge from the far reaches of the globe (yes, the globe!) for 9 days of action-packed, sleep-lacking exploration of contemporary music. The Callithumpian Consort and SICPP guest artists perform in nightly concerts, and the student fellows perform concerts each day leading up to the 10+-hour marathon Iditarod concert on Saturday, June 25th.

Every concert is FREE and open to the public. Callithumpian Consort programs are listed below:
