CULTIVATE 2018 Emerging Composers’ Institute
The Future is HERE!
CULTIVATE, Copland House’s annual, flagship emerging composers’ institute, embraces the entire artistic process, from creation and work development to public performance and preservation. Each year, a rotating, independent, peer-review jury of eminent composers selects six gifted composers at the start of their professional careers to participate in this all-scholarship, creative workshop and mentoring program. Fellows are commissioned to write a short (5’-7’) chamber composition, which is the focus of an intensive week of daily individual and collective rehearsals and work sessions mentored by CULTIVATE’s Grammy-nominated Director Derek Bermel and the internationally-acclaimed Music from Copland House ensemble.
