John Adams Young Composers Program Fall Concert Livestream

Students in our John Adams Young Composers Program showcase their works with world premieres of their compositions performed by professional musicians. Join our virtual audience and hear the pieces our students have composed over the fall session.

This year we have all been dealing with a lot of things. With so much going on, and so many limitations placed upon people being in the same room at the same time, how do composers create music? This semester we discovered an answer through exploring electronics and how to use them to develop sounds.  The students in the John Adams Young Composers Program have been studying how composers and artists have incorporated electronics into their works throughout the years. From musique concrète to electronic dance music, they’ve studied it all—and are excited to synthesize their inspiration to make some interesting, exciting, bizarre, and beautiful sounds for you all.

The John Adams Young Composers Program was founded in honor of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams, who has a long association with Crowden, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The heart of our mission is to guide and mentor our students through the formative stages of their creative growth as composers.
