San Diego New Music is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public performance of notated music of the highest integrity and artistic caliber from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We seek to advance the art form by promoting music composed with conceptual rigor, passionate energy, and singular artistic vision. SDNM enriches the artistic culture of San Diego through the presentation of an annual concert series and the soundON Festival of Modern Music, and through fostering its resident performing ensemble, NOISE. Both concerts are held at the Athenaeum library in La Jolla.

In addition to classical and jazz, the Athenaeum supports new, or modern, music. New music refers to chamber music written by 20th century composers. Since 1996 the Athenaeum has worked with San Diego New Music and their resident ensemble, the NOISE Ensemble, to present new music at the library. For ten years, a season called NOISE at the Library was presented. In 2006, the shift was made to presenting a once-a-year festival of music called soundON. soundON is three days of music, including concerts by the NOISE Ensemble, visits by guest composers, open rehearsals, workshops, and a community concert in which anyone, with any level of experience can participate. It is the only festival of its kind in San Diego.

The history of the La Jolla Athenaeum began in 1894, when a small group of pioneer La Jollans formed the La Jolla Reading Club. In 1898, a Reading Room was constructed at the corner of Girard Avenue and Wall Street, thanks to a generous donation from Florence Sawyer. In 1899, the group was incorporated as the Library Association of La Jolla, our legal name today, fulfilling the function of a membership library, and Ellen Browning Scripps was elected as the first president of its Board of Trustees.

Today the Athenaeum is one of only 16 membership libraries remaining in the United States, and one of two west of the Mississippi. As one of the founding members of the Membership Libraries Group, the Athenaeum was included in a book, America’s Membership Libraries, published in 2007. The book offers the fascinating histories of all of the country’s remaining membership libraries. It is available to members for checking out from the collection. The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library currently has more than 2,200 member households and attracts over 100,000 visitors each year.
