Other Minds

San Francisco, CA         

Other Minds is dedicated to the encouragement and propagation of contemporary music in all its forms through concerts, workshops and conferences that bring together artists and audiences of diverse traditions, generations and cultural backgrounds. By fostering cross-cultural exchange and creative dialogue, and by encouraging exploration of areas in new music seldom touched upon by mainstream music institutions, Other Minds is committed to expanding and reshaping the definition of what constitutes “serious music.” 

Other Minds at 20

From 1993 to 2015 the San Francisco non-profit organization Other Minds, under the leadership of its founding Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian, has presented 20 festivals of music by 180 different composers from around the world in San Francisco. All the composers appeared in person for performances of their music. For the 20th festival in 2015, ten of them who had appeared previously were invited back for the first time to reprise the experience.
