New Voices

USC student composers concerts

At the end of each term, student composers present their work at the New Voices concert. This student-produced concert series, established in 2001 by Drs. Bain and Rogers, is designed to stimulate compositional activity and educate composers in practical matters of concert production, publicity and artistic collaboration. Participation in these concerts is a requirement for the successful completion of our B.M., M.M. and D.M.A. degrees in composition.

All concerts are digitally recorded and available on compact disc in the USC Music Library. A student-produced podcast of Concert XIII is available on iTunes.

New Voices - Student Composers Recital

Twenty student performers will showcase nine world premieres of new works by School of Music student composers in the New Voices concert April 26. This is the final concert of the year for the student composer concert series, and it offers an array of different instrumental performances and concepts, including a setting for vocal duet of William Butler Yeats’s “The Mermaid,” a musical depiction of life as experienced by a scarecrow, and a rhythmically intricate work for eight woodwind and string instruments that uses microtonal tuning.
