What is a composium? It's like a concert, plus a master class, plus a competition. It's informative, dramatic, and entirely thrilling.

Witness an amazing afternoon of excitement, drama, and music. Be sure and mark your calendar to hear the winning compositions by America's top young composers discussed, rehearsed, and conducted by Maestro Christopher Wilkins and performed by the orchestra.

In the first session the winning chamber ensemble compositions are performed by symphony musicians. Each composer is interviewed by Maestro Wilkins and comments are given by the judges and musicians.

After a brief intermission, the full orchestra session starts. The performance of each winning full-orchestra composition begins with an audio excerpt from the young composer's computer-generated MIDI score. Next, the composition is rehearsed, giving the composer an opportunity to interact with Maestro Wilkins, the orchestra musicians, and the judges. Each session ends with the final recorded performance of the composition.

Dress casually, bring the kids, and prepare to have your mind expanded. You will never listen to an orchestra performance in quite the same way again.

Admission to the 2015 Composium is free. Doors will be kept open during the event so that you can come to be inspired by your favorite young composer or stay for this entire amazing event. After the performance, everyone is invited backstage to share refreshments and mingle with musicians, judges, the composers and their families, and of course Maestro Wilkins.
