Featured New Music Center

MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music
Bowling Green State University, Ohio, USA

Bowling Green State University proudly presents the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music,
an award-winning organization devoted to the study and promotion of contemporary music and technology. Founded in 1987 with funding from an Ohio Board of Regents Academic Challenge Grant, the Center builds on the strong and internationally-recognized activities of the College of Musical Arts, presenting concerts and symposia, disseminating information, sponsoring research and collecting archival materials. The Center enriches the lives of northwest Ohio residents and assists music professionals from throughout the United States.
As a result of these activities, the Center received the 1992 and 1998 Chamber Music America/ASCAP
Awards for Adventurous Programming..
