Project Abstract/ Summary

The School of Performing Arts' Music Division will be hosting the Society of Composers Region 1 (New England) conference this October 22-24. There will be several concerts of the music of visiting guest composers, performers and of Umaine Faculty. We also will be hosting, as guest artists for one concert within the festival: a clarinet and percussion duo from Boston, Transient Canvas.

The Society of Composers, Inc. is a national organization that sponsors events across the country. UMaine's Region 1 Conference will focus on New England composers. We expect to have 4-5 concerts of a combination of visiting musicians and local performers. Transient Canvas will perform one concert, programmed in consultation with SCI and our music division as the host.
