Alarm Will Sound, Donnacha Dennehy to Participate in 2012 Mizzou New Music Summer Festival: Artists-in-Residence, Guest Composer
Alarm Will Sound will be the Artists-in-Residence at the third annual Mizzou New Music Summer Music Festival, held July 22–28, 2012, on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia. Eight composers from around the world will be selected through a portfolio application process to compose a work to be performed by Alarm Will Sound. The deadline for portfolio submissions is this Tuesday, November 1.
Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy will be a guest composer at the festival, participating in discussions with the selected composers and master classes, as will fellow guest composer Steven Stucky. Festival attendees will also take part in workshops with Alarm Will Sound and receive a professional live recording of the premiere performance of their work.
Festival tuition for each selected composer will be provided through the generous contributions of the Sinquefield Charitable Foundation.
