The Los Angeles Philharmonic announced on April 7 that composer Andrew Norman ’09 AD has been named the new Director of the Composer Fellowship Program (CFP). Norman is already actively involved in the application and selection process for the next class of high school-aged Composer Fellows, who will begin the two-year fellowship with the LA Phil in the fall of 2015.

Building on the legacy of CFP Founder Steven Stucky and outgoing/current Program Director James Matheson, Norman will cultivate the talent of young composers through intensive, firsthand experiences, including lessons, reading sessions, lectures, LA Phil concerts and encounters with today’s most notable composers. Additionally, Norman will guide each of the Fellows during the composition process of their new works for orchestra, a process that culminates with each work being premiered in concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
