For the past two weeks, I have been attending Charlotte New Music Festival in North Carolina. It is a composers workshop where composers can study with teachers and hopefully learn something we can take with us into our careers. We attended seminars with experts and concerts with musical ensembles. We were also given the opportunity to share with composers our own work and talk about how we write (which composers love to do).
It was held on the campus of Queens University and several other venues throughout town. I have met new friends from all over the country and shared many new experiences which I will share in detail later.
