Composer Residencies

For ANY AGE students WITH or WITHOUT musical experience

World class artists and ensembles from the ACO roster team up with renowned composers to perform concerts featuring contemporary American music in assembly-style, interactive performance settings. Performances can stand alone, or serve as an adjunct or supplement to ACO workshops or related classroom work. Longer term composer residencies can also be arranged. Emphasis is placed on introducing students to concepts of creativity and artistry, the work of the composer, and the rooting of their work in cultural sources often already familiar to the students.
