2020 Young Women Composers Camp

The Young Women Composers Camp aims to amplify the voices of young female-identifying and non-binary composers, to allow them access to a high level of musical training, and to work towards a more equitable and diverse composition field.

The Young Women Composers Camp (YWCC) is a music composition festival for students aged 14–19 who identify as female or non-binary. During the two-week program at Temple University this July, approximately 20 students will engage with college-level coursework, participate in master classes with guest composers Gabriela Lena Frank and Angélica Negrón, engage with cultural centers in the city, sing works by female composers in choir, and receive private composition lessons. Students will also spend one day of the festival at the So Percussion Summer Institute in Princeton, where they will attend rehearsals of new works for percussion, meet with their resident composer Sarah Kirkland Snider, and participate in reading a large-scale work with percussion participants. YWCC culminates in a professionally-recorded concert of world premiere compositions by our students, which will be premiered by our 2020 guest ensemble, Variant Six.
