curious about pursuing composition as a serious hobby or vocation.
This event has been cancelled for 2012-13.
"A lot of people say that they have music running around inside their heads, even when their iPods are on the blink and they aren't within earshot of a stereo system. Does this sort of thing ever happen to you? Now here’s the really big question: Are any of those tunes ones that you make up? If so, might you be a composer?
If you are curious to find out more about what it means to be write music – what sort of things you need to learn, what sorts of gifts you need to already have, and what sorts of opportunities there are for composers – why not come explore such things at a workshop at Calvin College?"
Conducted by: David Fuentes, Professor of Composition and Theory, Calvin College
When: TBA. Coming in 2013-14.
Where: Calvin College Covenant Fine Arts Center, Lab 224
Contact: David Fuentes | Phone: (616) 526-6569 | email
After lunch, students will have an opportunity to present music they have written for comments. The workshop is free, but limited to 15 students.
