Applications open for NJSO’s Cone Composition Institute

Posted on: January 24, 2017

The deadline is February 1 for composers to apply for the 2017 New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Edward T. Cone Composition Institute, which promotes new music and emerging composers. The Institute will select four participating composers for the July 10-15 institute on the Princeton University campus. The NJSO will give the professional world premieres of the participants’ works at a public concert on July 15 at Richardson Auditorium in Princeton. At the institute, composers will hear their works in rehearsal and performance and will participate in masterclasses with Institute Director and composer Steven Mackey; they will receive feedback from NJSO musicians and guest conductor JoAnn Falletta, who had conducted and mentored composers at the 2015 session. The Institute will also provide career-development opportunities with industry leaders. For more information and to apply, click here.
