About

Composer Lab

 

Launched in 2015, the Nashville Symphony Composer Lab & Workshop provides emerging young composers with the opportunity to develop their talents and gain hands-on experience working with a major American orchestra. Selected participants will travel to Nashville in October to hear their music performed by the GRAMMY® Award-winning Nashville Symphony and receive mentoring and feedback from Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero, Workshop Director Aaron Jay Kernis and other orchestra professionals. Participants will also potentially earn a performance of their work during the Nashville Symphony’s 2016/17 Classical Series.
Nashville Symphony Composer Lab & Workshop is supported by founding sponsor BMI.

This year's participants:

Jacob Bancks - Rock Island Line

Michael Laurello - Promises

Daniel Schlosberg - "My reflection ran away with my eyes" 

Gabriella Smith - Tumblebird Contrails
