“Each semester, student composers not only complete a number of original pieces, but also share their music with the world, presenting newly formed ideas and inviting dialogue with the listening community,” he added.  “The semesterly student composers concert highlights all the individual voices currently active in the major and a diverse array of styles and methods.  It's always a unique and engaging experience."
