The Peak FreQuency Annual Festival, a resident organization of the Music Program at the University of Colorado Springs, serves as a platform for innovative and diverse pursuits in music and interdisciplinary arts projects that emphasize inclusivity, sustainability, social justice and education to the Front Range community. Peak FreQuency brings together world-class guest artists and organizations with faculty and students in interactive residencies.

The 2019 Peak FreQuency festival provides space for constructive discourse about environment, ancestry, and political boundaries through music. We aim to redefine the concert music tradition and challenge stylistic boundaries through collaboration with other genres, and art forms. Here, musical material becomes redefined as the environment, bodies, culture, and objects. This year we are featuring Raven Chacon, composer, performer and installation artist from Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation, and Nina C. Young, an emerging composer and sound artist from New York. VAPA Music Program faculty will be featured performers alongside other local musical specialists of new music. Student engagement will also be an important voice of the festival with the final Sunday afternoon concert focusing on performances and compositions from students in the VAPA Music Program. Free and open to the public. For more information contact Jane Rigler at jrigler@uccs.edu.
