Now celebrating our 44th season, Collage New Music was founded by percussionist Frank Epstein, who served as Music Director until 1991, when he passed the musical leadership to frequent guest conductor David Hoose. Today, Mr. Epstein continues to perform with the ensemble and serves as the president of the board of trustees. 

Our mission is to commission, perform, and record today’s new music, and to ensure that it has a vibrant future for tomorrow by promoting ongoing engagement among listeners, performers and composers.
