Society of Composers National Conference Set for February 13-16

The Society of Composers (SCI) National Conference will be held at Ohio State February 13-16, under the auspices of the School of Music's Contemporary Music Festival. The festival will feature 100 new works of music in 12 concerts over the three and a half days, many of which are world premieres. The festival also will welcome guest composers, performers, and scholars from all over the United States, panel sessions on new music, and performances by Ohio State faculty and students.

The keynote speaker is Joshua Fineberg, a noted composer and author. Other highlights include noted violinist and Ohio State Professor Kia-Hui Tan, guest artists pianist Fali Pavri of the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, renowned Anubis Saxophone Quartet, and appearances by School of Music ensembles. Far from a staid, academic event, the conference will celebrate music from the (late) Frank Zappa and Michael Daugherty, as well as music ranging from choral, symphonic, and electroacoustic to chamber and multi-media performances.

Registration is necessary to obtain the official conference publications and for admission to receptions. See the conference webpage at for complete information on the event
