Now into its second decade of celebrating the beauty that
lies "between the keys" of the piano, MicroFest is the world's leading concert series devoted to the glorious universe of non-standard tunings. Founded by microtonal guitarist and radio personality
John Schneider in 1997, MicroFest has grown to a festival of seven separate events this year at
Southern California venues ranging from Santa Monica to Claremont, Pasadena to Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA. MicroFest has included ground-breaking concerts and
premieres of works by Ben Johnston, Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, and Harry Partch with new and historical instruments.
MicroFest is co-directed by Schneider and composer Bill Alves.|
