COMPOSERS CONFERENCE & CHAMBER MUSIC WORKSHOPS: July 19-August 2, 2015

Guided for nearly 40 years by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Mario Davidovsky, the Composers Conference & Chamber Music Workshops offers participants a unique two-fold experience. First, it provides a select number of emerging composers with an intense two-week program of seminars, public colloquia, and performances of their recent works.
