THE THEME FOR THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL IS.....
IN MOTION...This year’s theme “in motion” asks us to explore movement in its many forms: from simply discovering what moves, to reflecting on the meaning of motion, to actively being present in the moment.
From . . .
chaotic string textures that conjure the natural imagery of the tornado season as told by Joshua Roman and the JACK Quartet,
to music and the moving image,
to the premiere of Richard Wilson’s String Quartet No. 6,
MODfest celebrates the diverse ways in which art
reflects and moves
through our constantly changing world.
This year’s festival marks the first time MODfest is moving off-campus. We are excited to present
Ensemble Mik Nawooj in the newly-renovated Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn. Formerly storage for
horse-drawn & electric trolleys during the 19th & early-20th centuries, this historic Main Street
building will support music, art, and other cultural programming.
award-winning guest artists,
we invite you to join us forthis exciting two-week exploration of:
Christine Howlett & Tom Pacio, Modfest co-directors
