Future Classics: Emerging Composers Spotlight

About This Concert:

A concert that changes lives and may change the course of music, as seven emerging composers share their most exciting new works with you.

Fun Facts:

  • Haydn once said of the young Beethoven, “Keep your eye on him, as he’ll make a noise in the world someday.” The same could be said of the promising young composers on this concert.
  • This remarkable future-forward concert—the nation’s most comprehensive and highest-profile platform for emerging orchestral composers—is part of the Minnesota Orchestra Composer Institute, which celebrates its 15th birthday.
  • Vote for your favorite music of the concert on Twitter. The winner will receive an ultra-rare second performance the following night on the Orchestra’s November 11 live concert broadcast celebrating Minnesota Public Radio’s 50th anniversary!
  • Pulitzer Prize-winner Kevin Puts is the ideal director for the Composer Institute and Future Classics concert—having already mentored dozens of promising young composers.
  • Minnesota Public Radio’s Fred Child will host the concert onstage, interviewing each composer briefly before the downbeat of his or her piece.
