Our Composer Workshop has the goals of giving American composers of merit the opportunity to create new works, giving attention and exposure to worthy underrepresented music, and developing methods in which the particular musical style or message of new and modern works can be communicated to a wider general audience. Our Phoenix Ensemble has produced several important recordings, including world premieres of music of Jonathan Dawe and Milton Babbitt.
