Join us for a preview of the upcoming Living Music Summit Concerts on June 12 at 4pm ET!
The Boston New Music Initiative is thrilled to announce its inaugural Living Music Summit. The summit is a series of concerts, workshops, industry roundtables, and networking events designed to promote all aspects of BNMI’s central mission of supporting and advancing the careers of its members in the field of new music. Starting with a series of virtual events and culminating with a weekend of events from June 18-20, 2021, the Living Music Summit aims to make a measurable and lasting impact on both the regional and international new music communities.
DONATE here to help us make this event a reality!
As part of the Living Music Summit, BNMI will be hosting a Workshop on Writing for Violin and Viola on June 19 from 11am - 1pm with guests Arjun Mudan and Ethan Wood. Three composers will have the opportunity to have their piece for solo violin, solo viola, violin duets, or violin/viola duets to be workshopped. Pieces will be chosen based on how much they will benefit from the workshop, not on overall quality, playability or completeness. Three works will be chosen, and the composers will be notified by June 9. Chosen composers must 1) be a full member of BNMI at the time of the workshop and 2) virtually attend the workshop. Apply by May 31, 2021 for consideration.
