Alarm Will Sound is a community of individuals who joined together around art that we believe in, to explore new music and to push our society’s ideas about what contemporary performing arts can be. The community that started in the band has grown to include you, and so many other fans who believe in the value of music created in today’s world. Since the U.S. political campaign and election, many in our community feel isolated and adrift, so we’d like to remind you of the power and beauty of joining together in a community to support and engage in art that you believe in.
It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us as a supporter of our 2016/17 Season.
Your tax-deductible donation will help us push ourselves to create ever more boundary-breaking, thought-provoking, and innovative new-music experiences that engage our society.
A lot has changed recently. What hasn’t changed is the power of music and of live performance to create a shared experience unlike any other, to unite us in a common objective — to be in the Now together. We are as committed as ever to bringing new music to you, to sharing the incomparable experience of seeing Alarm Will Sound perform, to challenging the expected, and to expanding the boundaries of what new music can be.
Say yes to new.
Say yes to now.
Say yes to joining us as we push music forward.

Stefan lives in Columbia, Missouri where he keeps busy as a professor of composition and music theory at the University of Missouri and as the music director of the Columbia Civic Orchestra. As a kid, he was composing even before he started playing the cello; now he does both with Alarm Will Sound. The group features his compositions quite often and Stefan loves writing for the ensemble because he can tailor the music to each person in the group.
Stefan went to Eastman for a MM and DMA in composition. He remembers meeting Alan on the 2nd floor promenade at Eastman and getting recruited to play with Ossia. Alarm Will Sound grew out of the Ossia ensemble and Stefan has been with the group ever since. His favorite Alarm Will Sound concert experience was at the University of South Carolina. He describes it as a wild concert with people lined up at the doors and standing ovations. Who knew classical music could be as exciting as a rock concert?
This is our world premiere performance at the Mizzou International Composers Festival in 2011.
