The Composer Fellows participate in intensive seminars and public colloquia, and each has a work publicly performed and professionally recorded by the Conference Ensemble. The Chamber Music Workshop offers amateur musicians daily coachings, workshops, masterclasses, ensemble readings, performance opportunities and evening concerts. Students in the Contemporary Performance Institute study, rehearse, and perform challenging repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. Concerts at the Conference feature classics and rarities from the 18th-21st centuries including music of the Composer Fellows and faculty.
A group of conservatory-level students will be selected to study, rehearse, and perform challenging repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries. Applications will be accepted from singers, violin, viola, cello, contrabass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, percussion and piano. Pre-formed groups may also apply.
