About the composers:

The Crane School of Music’s Musical Studies in Composition program is a highly selective program that provides composition majors with individualized attention and access to significant performance and coaching opportunities with faculty, student colleagues and visiting performing artists. Composition majors begin private study during their first year in the program, with weekly opportunities for student and faculty composers to meet together to discuss each other’s music, to work with guest composers and performers, and to present other topics relevant to the art, craft and business of composition.

Graduates of the composition program at Crane continue their studies in the top graduate programs in the United States, and often pursue work in professional organizations devoted to new classical or commercial music.
