Students explore contemporary music creation through composition, improvisation and performance in this twice-weekly class. The program focuses on creating new music through collaboration between student instrumentalists and student composers. Students explore modern composition styles and performance techniques — learning some history, creating their own new approaches, and thinking beyond traditional formats to create music that is uniquely theirs. Classes include ensemble rehearsal (online, Zoom), lessons on history and performance technique, and masterclasses with special guest faculty. The program culminates in the creation of a digital ensemble performance video of a newly composed piece of classical music.
Requirements: For intermediate and advanced musicians and composers. Performance applicants must submit a video performance of a piece of their choice. Composer applicants must submit a PDF score (and if possible a recording or digital rendering) of an original composition. Applicants will be reviewed by director Zach Herchen.
