More than 80 artists from across the sonic spectrum come together for nine collaborative, one-night-only performances.

Kaufman Music Center’s Ecstatic Music Festival returns for its seventh year, bringing together composers and performers from different musical genres for nine one-night-only collaborative performances featuring world premieres, new arrangements and the exclusive opportunity to hear artists discuss their work. Starting Jan 9 and running through May 13, 2017 the festival, hailed as “the alt-classical world’s main showcase” (The New York Times), will feature collaborations from more than 80 artists.
