Composition students are expected to compose for a variety of performance media and are afforded numerous opportunities to hear their original compositions while working in the program.
The Composing Tomorrow concert series features new solo and chamber works for instruments and voices, often utilizing new technologies and intermedia. These programs are presented every semester, and are listed in the calendar section of this website, on the School of Music website, and advertised through social media, flyers, and a variety of other means.
In addition to the performance opportunities above, the composition department regularly seeks performers from our many outstanding performance studios. Often times, these studios have collaborated with students on a long-term basis to produce exciting new music that gets heard at many venues outside the School of Music. Such opportunities are posted on the composition bulletin board and website and distributed to the composers listserv as they arise.
