Minnesota Orchestra Future Classics: Emerging Composers Spotlight

In this concert wholly devoted to deserving young artists, we introduce composers on a blazing path to create the next generation’s orchestral masterpieces. This program is part of Minnesota Orchestra’s American Expressions festival, celebrating and exploring this country’s bold, imaginative and diverse classical music tradition.
Minnesota Orchestra’s Composer Institute is a partnership between Minnesota Orchestra and the American Composers Forum. Composer Institute is unique in the nation in its combination of orchestral rehearsals, public performance and numerous targeted workshops, with music industry leaders speaking on musical, career, business and professional development issues. The Institute nurtures the participants’ musical acumen and broadens their career management skills, assisting in their growth as artists and community leaders. Seminar topics include many not offered elsewhere, including advanced instrumental and orchestral writing, copyrights, commissioning, licensing, publishing, promotion, music preparation, public speaking, working with conductors and union orchestras, community residencies, CD and media production, and working in educational settings, among others.
