2019 JUNE IN BUFFALO CONCERT SCHEDULE IS ANNOUNCED

une in Buffalo is an annual, world-renowned new music festival and conference dedicated to composers, and will take place this year from June 3-9, 2019 on the University at Buffalo’s Amherst campus.  Presented by the UB Department of Music and The Robert & Carol Center for 21st Century Music, this week-long symposium under the artistic direction of SUNY Distinguished Faculty member David Felder, offers an intensive schedule of seminars, lectures, workshops, professional presentations, participant forums and open rehearsals for the accepted students as well as afternoon and evening concerts open to the general public and critics.

Each year, between 80 and 100 student applications from around the globe are received and reviewed, but only about 25 are accepted into the program.  All student participants have one work performed publicly during the week by musicians who have dedicated a significant portion of their musical careers to the presentation of very recent music.  In addition, the students have an opportunity to meet and be mentored by the five or so distinguished senior composers that are invited each year.  This year’s senior composers are Anna Clyne, David Felder, Brian Ferneyhough, Stephen Hartke, Lei Liang and Rolf Wallin.
