Composer-In-Residence, CORO Composer’s Institute @ SIMPSON COLLEGE | Indianola | Iowa | United States

Deadline to apply: April 27, 2018

Want to study choral composition with me?

The week-long Composer’s Institute is devoted to the emerging composer. Each composer selected to participate will receive individual composition lessons and attend seminars on the commissioning process and advanced choral writing. Compositions will be rehearsed and performed by the CORO Vocal Artists. During the week-long institute, composers will spend time fine tuning their existing composition and have the opportunity to create a new piece with the guidance of Jocelyn Hagen & Tim Takach. CORO Conducting Faculty, Dr. Moody and Oltman, also spend time with each composer to discuss their compositions and offer insight into the composer/conductor relationship.
