Who is leading NUMUS Northwest?

NUMUS Northwest is led by 6 members of the Seattle community:

  • Kevin Clark (New Music USA)

What is the origin of NUMUS Northwest?

Inspired by the New Music Gathering, the leadership team (many of whom have attended at least one NMG) has a strong desire to recreate the community-building, collaborative-natured, and artistically-stunning event with a focus on musicians and artists in the Northwest… (but not exclusively so). NUMUS Northwest first took place in January 2017, at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
