Composers Workshop Winners

The Composers Workshop is excited to announce this year’s winners!

The following composers and works will be featured on the 2019 Composers Workshop.  The selection committee recieved an unprecendented number of scores this year, and deliberation was extensive.  From this extremely competitive process, we are excited to present a truly amazing roster of new works for this year’s program!  The following composers will participate in exclusive master class opportunities throughout the Festival week, and their works will be performed on one of two new music concerts on Saturday afternoon.  If you love new music (and who doesn’t?), be sure to catch these great performances!

We look forward to hearing these new compositions!
