We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Monday, December 15, 2014.
This course involves itself with creating intensive year-long collaborations between composers and conservatory performers. The coursework is project based. Projects are focussed on composing for specific instrumental combinations, differing from year to year. Studies in orchestration and score study of repertory pieces will help composers develop their craft for writing for the selected performer combination. The class will predominantly be run like a group composition lesson where students present ongoing work for the chosen ensemble to each other. At various times throughout the semesters meetings will be held with performers who will workshop works-in-progress. The course will culminate in a final performance and recording of finished work.
