The East Bay’s appetite for both traditional and avant-garde classical is sure to be sated this coming season.

The East Bay is at once the intersection of new technology and innovative composition — with venerable institutions such as UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Technology and Mills College’s Center for Contemporary Music — and home to a massive audience for traditional fare such as Early Music and Renaissance material performed on carefully restored period instruments. This coming concert season provides a wealth of both, often on the same night, as the work of familiar titans abuts progressive local upstarts and young virtuosos alike.
