Sonic Crossroads was founded by Kathryn Woodard as an initiative to explore the intersection of sound worlds. The initiative has supported a wide range of activities including composer residencies, recordings, research, and event reviews. Since 2015 we have focused on pedagogy and the publication of sheet music that introduces students of all ages to new and unfamiliar styles of music.

We are promoting the music of Ilhan Usmanbas who is celebrating his 100th birthday in 2021!
