Now in its forty-eighth year, SFCMP is one of the most active ensembles in the United States dedicated to contemporary music. Artistic Director, Eric Dudley shares, “I try to use our art to create anew, to re-examine, and reinterpret the noise of the everyday into something reflective and all-embracing.”
