Reporting Live from the Minnesota Orchestra’s Composer Institute

Here at NewMusicBox, it is once again our pleasure to welcome the contributions of composers involved in the Minnesota Orchestra’s Composer Institute (Nov. 1-8). Nine composers from across the nation have traveled to Minneapolis to attend seminars, workshops and, most importantly, work on a piece of their music with Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra. It will be a fast-paced experience culminating in a public performance, and this year participants Ted Hearne and Justin Merritt have volunteered to tag team the blogging duties and share their experiences with us. Check this page often throughout the week and follow along.
