Nief Norf Summer Festival 2019

Nief-Norf is a Knoxville-based, multi-tiered contemporary music organization devoted to fostering creative work among musical interpreters, composers, and scholars. Nief-Norf presents and performs contemporary chamber music in ways that explore the breadth and depth of the repertoire. Their focus on flexible repertoire-based instrumentation allows the ensemble to connect Knoxville’s most voracious ears with outstanding works of the 20th Century as well as new commissions and collaborations.
