Stay tuned for the 2018 Ecstatic Music Festival lineup, which will be announced in the fall.

Kaufman Music Center’s Ecstatic Music Festival brings together composers and performers from across the sonic spectrum for collaborative, one-night-only performances featuring world premieres, new arrangements and the exclusive opportunity to hear artists discuss their work. Hailed as “the alt-classical world’s main showcase” (The New York Times), the EMF features collaborations from more than 80 artists.
