The philosophy behind Norfolk's New Music Workshop is equal collaboration between composers and performers under the supervision of distinguished resident composers and guest Artist-Faculty. Fellows take part in a rigorous curriculum of coaching, master classes, rehearsals, discussions and performances. Ample time is allowed for composing and practicing. Each participant of the New Music Workshop will receive an Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship covering the full cost of tuition, housing and meals.
The Workshop is interactive in the truest sense, focusing on the process of musical creation and collaboration from concept to concert. Each composer will write two short works (one for the complete ensemble and one for guitars only) and collaborate on the compositions with performers over the course of the Workshop. All compositions are performed and recorded.
The 2014 workshop will feature ensembles involving Classical and electric guitar.
Applications will be accepted for:
clarinet (doubling on bass clarinet)
piano (doubling on synthesizer)
classical guitar (doubling on electric guitar)
double bass (doubling on electric bass).
ARTIST-FACULTY INCLUDES: Artists and faculty are subject to change.
