Wild Shore New Music is a presenting organization dedicated to bringing adventurous new chamber music, with an emphasis on living composers, to the communities in and around Kachemak Bay, Alaska. Wild Shore's sole purpose is to cultivate and stimulate south-central Alaska's new music community, while supporting the already fertile artistic culture. It fosters collaboration between some of the nation's finest classically-trained musicians and the extraordinarily creative artists, songwriters, and musicians on the Kenai Peninsula; it presents outreach concerts in nearby native villages; and it offers instrumental workshops for students of all ages. Through these activities, Wild Shore aims to create an inspiring concert series set amidst the glaciers, volcanoes, 24-foot tides and endless days of summer in Kachemak Bay.
Wild Shore was founded by four Alaskans to bring new music to the people of our home state. Our team includes Katie Cox (Executive Director), Conrad Winslow (Artistic Director), Andie Springer (Music Director) and Kelsey Christian (Financial Advisor).
