Called the “new music impresarios of San Francisco” (Cy Musiker, KQED), the Guerrillas were founded in San Francisco in 2012 by a few unruly souls, and serve to keep their finger on the pulse of the new music scene and promote both creation and listening. They have worked with some of the best young talent in the Bay Area, and are active at the Center for New Music in San Francisco. They have commissioned and premiered over 35 new pieces from over 30 composers as well as advocated the repeat performances of new music, as both are vital.
