From A Blog Supreme:
Over the summer, Columbia University hosted the Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute, a collaborative effort between its Center for Jazz Studies and the American Composers Orchestra. Around 30 composers in the field of jazz were invited to participate in a week’s worth of seminars and workshops to learn about orchestral techniques, as recently reported on Weekend Edition and in an earlier post.
Knowledge may be its own reward, but there was also a tasty carrot for those who attended: Eight of the composers would be selected to have their works performed in public readings by the ACO in June 2011. A Blog Supreme is honored to announce those winners:
Volker Goetze and Joel Harrison were selected as alternates.
