The PRISMS contemporary music festival is held annually at Arizona State University’s School of Music, Dance and Theatre.
The festival seeks to build a community of performers, composers, and audiences through the creation of contemporary music.
The festival also provides opportunities for students, ensembles, and faculty at ASU to perform contemporary music, to participate in the commissioning of new works, and to work with renowned visiting artists.
PRISMS was founded in 2009 by Glen Hackbarth and Simone Mancuso.
In 2023, the festival will be organized by Simone Mancuso, Gabriel Bolaños, Fernanda Navarro, Alex Temple and Jody Rockmaker.
