California Symphony Young Composer in Residence

Residency activities and world premiere of a new work by Viet Cuong, his first during a three-year residency with California Symphony.

The California Symphony is thrilled to announce the selection of Viet Cuong as its next Young American Composer-in-Residence (YACR) for a three-year period beginning with the 2020/21 season.  The YACR program offers emerging composers unprecedented opportunities to create, rehearse, premiere, and record three major orchestral compositions. In each year of the residency, Viet Cuong will collaborate with Music Director Donato Cabrera and the Orchestra to compose a new work, while also developing his craft through in-depth engagement with a professional orchestra —getting instantaneous feedback from Maestro and the musicians during workshops and rehearsals, with the opportunity to revise and refine the work prior to its public performance.
