Evolution Contemporary Music 


a destination for outstanding
new music since 2005. 


Founded and directed by composer and Peabody Institute faculty member Judah Adashi, the Evolution Contemporary Music Series has made Baltimore a destination for outstanding new music and musicians since 2005. Praised by Tim Smith of the Baltimore Sun for having "elevated and enriched Baltimore's new music scene enormously," and by the Baltimore City Paper as "superb...not the same-old, same-old," the Evolution Series has presented or premiered works by over 75 composers, performed by acclaimed musicians from Baltimore and beyond. Featured guests have included Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; Pulitzer Prize-winning composers Caroline Shaw and John Luther Adams; and music critics Tim Page (Washington Post) and Alex Ross (New Yorker).
