Composition Generals Concert
Taplin Auditorium in Fine Hall
A concert of new works by Kate Neal, Troy Herion and Gilad Cohen.
The Composition Generals Concert is a required rite of passage that all second-year composition graduate students must complete before becoming Ph.D. Candidates. Students are asked to write music that responds to a composer who has not previously been influential to their compositional process. A response can be interpreted in a variety of ways, however it is not a literal re-creating of the chosen composer’s style. Instead, the response is a composition that results from personal and idiosyncratic reflection on alternative styles of music-making.
Before each new work, the audience will hear a representative work by the model composer.
Admission is free. The concert will be followed by a magnificent reception at the Princeton Campus Club.
Location: Taplin Auditorium in Fine Hall
