Announcing the 13th Annual Young Composers Corner
Announcing the 13th Annual Young Composers Corner at Cazenovia Counterpoint: A one-of-a-kind program offered at no cost to middle- and high-school students interested in or currently writing music.
Taking place at Cazenovia Public Library July 19–23, YCC sessions include exercises, activities, and discussions designed to help young composers express themselves more expertly in music. Participants have access to music-writing software on library computers and learn from professional composer Paul Leary.
Completed pieces will be performed by the composer and/or Society for New Music Players, with an opportunity for feedback from audience and musicians. The reading session/performance will be held on July 31 at 4:00 pm at Cazenovia's Lakeland Park or Stone Hill Quarry Art Park.

SNM Invites Arts Organizations and Performers to Help Celebrate Its 50th Season
As the Society for New Music makes plans for its 50th season of new music in 2021-22, our board is inviting arts organizations, ensembles, and soloists in the region to join in that celebration by showcasing and/or performing music by one of the composers who we've commissioned or who has won our Israel/Pellman Prize winners over these many years. The full list of our commissioned and prize-winner composers can be found here. However, performing music by any living composer, especially one from Upstate New York, would qualify
for the performance list SNM will publicize throughout the season.
SNM is one of the oldest new music groups in the U.S., and the existence of SNM in Upstate New York benefits many regional colleges and universities by attracting gifted musicians and composers to the area, affording them a new music community, performance opportunities, and premieres of music on the cutting edge.
