The Saint Petersburg Contemporary Music Center «reMusik.org» announces the VIII St. Petersburg International New Music Festival, taking place from May 21st—June 2nd, 2021. The reMusik.org Festival is a point of intersection where the diverse world views of contemporary composers meet at a crossroads of musical paths that have emerged in the past few years.

The festival will be held in distinguished venues around the city, including the Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater, the St. Petersburg State Philharmonic, St. Petersburg State Conservatory, New Holland and others.
