Musica Nova Reception
The Anchorage Symphony is proud to be  North of Ordinary… a bit different from orchestras in other parts of the country.

In recent years Symphony Magazine decided to do feature stories on orchestras who were introducing indigenous music to their audiences or adding multi-media to their programs. They contacted us and learned that the Anchorage Symphony introduced cultural performers to our programming some 10 years earlier and showcased multi-media at our first concert in the Atwood Concert Hall over 30 years ago!

Musica Nova It is unusual for orchestras of our size to commission new work; the Anchorage Symphony has commissioned new work every year for the last 17 seasons through a group of donors who make up our commissioning club called Musica Nova, committed to adding the voice of our time to the orchestral repertoire. Musica Nova members have  helped your Anchorage Symphony  commission new works from astounding composers across the globe - and in so doing have the opportunity to hear directly from composers what influenced the creation of the new works.  

We had hoped to start signing up member this fall for our 75th Season; however, for the safety and health of our audiences and musicians, we made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our traditional concert season through the remainder of 2020. Please email Tyler Link at to be contacted when the next commission has been set and we are ready for new members.

Cost is $500 per person. Payment plans are welcome.
