Immerse yourself in 10 days of inspiring and enriching creativity and collaborative learning at this year’s Snow Pond Composers Workshop. Through in-depth interactions with our stylistically diverse faculty, a stimulating peer group, expert new-music performers, and a host of composition and performance opportunities, we seek to explore what’s at the core of our creative impulses, and how we can articulate and communicate that aesthetic essence most effectively in our chosen mediums.
In addition to private lessons and Master Class sessions with faculty composers, participants will explore new imaginative territories with immersion instructional and practicum sessions on improvisation, and an array of techniques for integrating improvisation into one’s compositions. Time will be provided for on-site composing, and participants will have a short piece for violin and viola performed, critiqued, and recorded by the acclaimed new-music duo andPlay, Maya Bennardo and Hannah Levinson.
Committed composers in all genres are welcome: contemporary classical, jazz, electronic/computer/sound, creative/experimental rock, hybrid genres, and more.
