ABOUT NO EXIT
Since its inception, the idea behind No Exit has been to serve as an outlet for the commission and performance of contemporary avant-garde concert music. Now in our eighth season and with well over fifty commissions to date, No Exit is going strong in our efforts to promote the music of living composers and to be an impetus for the creation of new works. We have strived to create exciting, meaningful and thought-provoking programs; always with the philosophy of bringing the concert hall to the community (not the other way around) and by presenting our programs in a manner which allows for our audience to really connect with the experience……… free and open to the public in every sense
