COMPOSERS CONFERENCE & CHAMBER MUSIC WORKSHOPS: July 20-August 3, 2014

The Composers Conference and Chamber Music Workshops, guided for nearly 40 years by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Mario Davidovsky, provides a unique two-fold experience: First, it gives a select number of young, emerging composers the opportunity to immerse themselves in an intense two-week composition workshop as well as showcase one of their compositions in a live, professional concert. Second, it offers for talented amateur chamber musicians a stimulating workshop environment that features professional coaching from our nationally-renowned faculty members, as well as opportunities for large-ensemble readings, masterclasses, workshops, concerts, and much more.
