2020 Summer Choral Composers Forum at Lehigh University (June 22 - 29) with Ēriks Ešenvalds and Steven Sametz

The Lehigh Choral Composers Forum, in association with the ACDA, offers a unique opportunity to composers of all levels to explore and develop their compositional voices in a weeklong intensive seminar held at Lehigh University's beautiful Zoellner Arts Center. The emphasis of the Forum is on the compositional process. Composers accepted into the program are asked to come with ideas, not finished pieces. Each day, participants will work with internationally acclaimed composer Ēriks Ešenvalds and founding director Steven Sametz in composition seminars and individual sessions to develop their pieces, which are then tried out in rehearsals with the professional a cappella ensemble, The Princeton Singers.

On Sunday, June 29th, an informal concert of the works created in the seminar will be held at Lehigh University's Baker Hall, a 900-seat state-of-the-art concert hall. Composers come away with a professional-quality recording of their work by The Princeton Singers.
