This particular colloquium will feature a few of our current composition students, working at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, sharing recent works in an open forum where all in attendance can offer constructive criticism. Interested parties can also chat with current students in the program over pizza, and then take in a free concert in the Daniel Recital Hall of recent works written by members of the composition area. Immediately after this concert, the Conservatory is also hosting 3-Minute Wonders with C3LA Chorus.
