TUTTI Festival

About the Series 

Every two years, because it takes that long to organize something this fabulous, Denison University’s Department of Music collaborates with musicians, composers, fine artists, dance artists, theatre, and creative people across genres to present the TUTTI Original Works Festival, a days-long celebration of original works.

“TUTTI” is a musical term, taken from the Italian for all together, an apt expression representative of the unusual depth and breadth of the artistic offerings of this event.

There is no established limit on duration but feasibility of performance will be a consideration. Preference will be given to works under 12 minutes in duration.
