More Details:

  • The Orchestra’s Composer Institute is a week-long training ground for the nation’s brightest young composers at Orchestra Hall that culminates with the Future Classics concert featuring a live performance of each composer’s work.
  • The Institute includes nuts-and-bolts sessions on writing orchestral music and tips on how to make a living at it.
  • Composers often create their music today via computer programs that—while handy—can only approximate the sound of the various orchestral instruments. There is no substitute for actually hearing what works (and what doesn’t) when musicians bring the music to life.
  • It is rare for a major American orchestra to devote an entire week of rehearsal time, and a full evening’s concert to emerging composers.
  • Osmo Vänskä has programmed some past “discoveries” on Minnesota Orchestra classical concerts, giving young composers a stunning career boost.
