BUFFALO, N.Y. — June in Buffalo, the internationally celebrated festival and conference for emerging composers of new music, will celebrate its 35th anniversary this year and it has a treat in store for its audiences.

From May 31 to June 6, the festival once again will offer a brilliant program of afternoon and evening concerts, master classes, open rehearsals, lectures, seminars and installations featuring several of the finest composers and performers of new music in the world: Steve Reich, Augusta Read Thomas, Olivier Pasquet, Bernard Rands, David Felder, Roger Reynolds, the Arditti Quartet, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble SurPlus, Ensemble Labortorium — the list goes on.

The festival was founded in 1975 at the University at Buffalo by Morton Feldman, a pioneer of “indeterminate music,” a development associated with the experimental New York School of composers, who included John Cage, Christian Wolff and Earle Brown — all of whom were involved with June in Buffalo from its inception.
