The Festival of Contemporary Music (FCM) is one of the world's premier showcases for works
from the current musical landscape and landmark pieces from the new music vanguard of the 21st century. FCM affords Tanglewood Music Center Fellows the opportunity to explore unfamiliar repertoire and experience the value of direct collaboration with living composers. The Festival takes place annually. 

Competitions and workshops take place in the Linde Center for Music & Learning. Musical genres are broad. In addition to concerts at Linde, both the Koussevitzky Shed and Ozawa Hall will host the music of composers who are young, and on their way up the proverbial scale in the field of classical music. FCM is jam-packed with music. Concert times are in the morning, afternoon and evening with Tanglewood Music Center's musicians and chamber orchestra performing.
