The strength of BMOP's mission lies in the balance between audiences and musicians. Together, we have the artistic, organizational, and financial resources to change the course of classical music. Already we have changed history through BMOP’s first 17 seasons and the launch of BMOP/sound. To continue evolving during this critical time, now more than ever we need to identify new music – and the new conversations it stimulates – as our mutual priority.
Your support as listeners, performers, and donors is the most critical piece of our future plans. Your gift, no matter what size, demonstrates your belief in BMOP’s mission and vitality, and encourages the support of others. Thank you for your generous contribution today!

The narrow melodic contours, crisply articulated events, and repeated motifs provide an attractively shifting soundscape that often makes me think of Stravinsky, of all people.
These works show Schuller to be a skillful and modest composer when working with larger forces—he orchestrates with a light hand, never overwhelming the concertante improvising soloists, nor exploding into neo-Kenton bombast.
