Copland House, based at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home in Cortlandt Manor, New York, has chosen six Fellows to participate in its annual CULTIVATE emerging composers institute from June 6-12. They are Jenny Beck, Ryan Chase, Carolyn Chen, Patrick Harlin, and Michael Small, as well as Daniel Schlosberg, the latter selected through a Copland House collaboration with the Nashville Symphony’s recently launched Composer Lab & Workshop. During the institute, the six composers will spend a week in Cortlandt Manor and at the Merestead estate in nearby Mount Kisco, New York in rehearsals, workshops, and discussion sessions with CULTIVATE Director Derek Bermel and composers Donnacha Dennehy and Reiko Fueting. The institute will conclude with a public concert featuring world premieres of works by each composer. Copland House’s mission is to “foster greater public awareness and appreciation of our nation’s composers and their work” through a range of programs for composers.
