The Jacksonville Symphony welcomes emerging, young composers from the EarShot program, a program that serves as a component of the National Orchestra Competition Discovery Network, bringing up-and-coming composers together with orchestras. EarShot is a partnership between the American Composers Orchestra, the League of American Orchestras, American Composers Forum and New Music USA. Orchestras all across the nation have participated in the EarShot program and the Jacksonville Symphony welcomes the opportunity to play a part in supporting new music throughout the nation. The process is simple: composers submit works to be selected and performed by orchestras across the nation and, once selected, will spend a week with the chosen symphony workshopping their compositions.
The composers selected for Jacksonville will spend the week working under the guidance of Music Director Courtney Lewis, the musicians of the Jacksonville Symphony and three mentor composers. This concert features works by all four up-and-coming composers as well as Courtney Bryan’s White Gleam Of Our Bright Star.
Pre-concert panel with participants led by Courtney Lewis begins at 6:45 PM.
