Boston Composers Collective Concert
March 1, 2011
Student composers from Berklee College of Music (Julie Hill, Marco Scorsolini, Karien de Waal), Boston Conservatory (Joseph Colombo, William Mandeville) and New England Conservatory (Katherine Balch, Andrew Watts, Nell Cohen) have teamed up to produce Boston’s first Boston Composers Collective Concert. Set against the backdrop of SMFA’s “Student Annual Exhibition,” the concert features nine world premieres of new classical music in a variety of instrumentation including pieces for string quartet, woodwind duo and voice.
The Boston Composers Collective is a society of young composers, whose aim is to expose the public to new music in innovative ways, presenting music in conjunction with other artistic media, fostering collaboration and performance opportunities between student composers and other young artists in the Boston area.
