American Composers Orchestra
New York, NY

ACO will hold its 23rd Annual Underwood New Music Readings for
emerging composers on Friday and Saturday, June 6 and 7, at the
DiMenna Center. In what has become a rite of passage for aspiring
orchestral composers, up to eight composers from throughout the
United States will be selected to receive a reading of a new work, and
one composer will be selected to receive a $15,000 commission for a
work to be performed by ACO during an upcoming season. Each
participating composer receives rehearsal, reading, and a digital
recording of his or her work. Review and feedback sessions with ACO principal players, mentor-composers,
guest conductors, and industry representatives provide crucial artistic, technical, and conceptual assistance.
To date, more than 100 composers have participated in the New Music Readings, including such awardwinning composers as Melinda Wagner, Derek Bermel, Randall Woolf, Daniel Bernard Roumain, Sebastian Currier, and Jennifer Higdon. This year, the Readings are part of the NY PHIL BIENNIAL.
