The festival's name indicates an emphasis on music being composed now—that is, within the last ten years. Many works are premiered each year during the festival concert series.Much of this year's music will receive its world premiere or, at the very least, its American or Ohio premiere.
From the early '60s to the mid '70s Capital's Conservatory of Music hosted a number of contemporary composers and played their compositions during a contemporary music festival organized by the Conservatory Dean, Mark Meyers. In the early '80s, Timothy E. Swinehart joined the faculty and featured guest composer/conductors annually with the Wind Symphony and Chamber Winds. In 1986 composer Rocky J. Reuter joined the faculty, and in 1987 he founded the NOW MUSIC Festival.
Most years, the NOW Festival brings international, national, and regional composers, conductors, and guest ensembles and chamber and solo performers to Central Ohio. Through festival activities, such as concerts, lectures, and workshops, the role of music in contemporary society is explored and discussed. The concert series is eclectic in nature, covering a diverse range of compositional and performance styles. The result is exposure and education for the entire community.
As well as many guest performers.
