Four emerging composers have been selected for the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s 2017 NJSO Edward T. Cone Composition Institute: Saad Haddad, Noah Kaplan, Sam Lipman, and Alyssa Weinberg. From July 10–15 at Princeton University, the four will have their works rehearsed and performed by the NJSO, participate in masterclasses with Institute Director Steven Mackey, receive feedback from conductor JoAnn Falletta and NJSO musicians, and have career-enriching sessions with music-industry leaders. On July 15 at Princeton’s Richardson Auditorium, Falletta will lead the orchestra in performances of Haddad’s Takht, Kaplan’s Forest Through Forest, Lipman’s Song of the Bhagavan, and Weinberg’s Tereza Slumbers, along with Four Iconoclastic Episodes by Institute Director Mackey. The institute is presented in collaboration with the Princeton University Department of Music.
