I'm a big fan of a lot of contemporary classical music. (I have way too many favorites to name, but to give you a sampling, I love Satie, John (Coolidge) Adams, Meredith Monk, Arvo Part, the list goes on and on...)
Anyway, this is such a niche that I'm having trouble finding events to go to and also meeting people with similar interests. I try to keep up with what's going on with the MSO and the UW music department, but I find that most of their repertoire is quite a bit older than the music I like. I've also unsuccessfully tried craigslist.
Can anybody suggest local ways to connect with contemporary classical fans and/or composers? (And, yes, if you're a fan, feel free to get in touch!)
