4-Sep-2017BMI Jazz Composers 2017-2018
Honored to be accepted into this year’s BMI Jazz Composers Workshop. For those unfamiliar, the program provides group discussion and rehearsal time with a professional ensemble at no-cost to composers wishing to experiment with new music for the Big Band instrumentation. While my preference has been a more compact and varied 10-member ensemble writing, this opportunity will provide me and the other participants fertile space to experiment in a supportive environment. There is a concert in mid-2018 that will feature some of the new works.
For those wishing to participate, head on over the BMI’s workshop page and consider applying!
