Northwest New Music Workshop says
The Northwest New Music Workshop July 2016 concert presentation features an all-premiere program of compositions by seven Seattle composers:

* Samantha Boshnack
* Greg Campbell
* Simon Henneman
* Sierra Klingele
* Pete Leinonen
* Dick Valentine
* Daniel Webbon

The first-ever Northwest New Music Workshop consists of five multi-instrumentalists, together capable of supporting compositions for french horn, trumpet, flugelhorn, saxophone, flute, guitar, string bass, percussion and drums. For this program, each of these five artists has composed new works specifically for the ensemble. Additionally, new works have been commissioned from two other area composers.

Northwest New-Music Workshop (NW2) is a workshop created by Simon Henneman and Dick Valentine, created to bring together Puget Sound area composers and instrumentalists in an evolving, dynamic collaborative environment. NW2 is devoted to creating, refining, rehearsing and performing new music encompassing the greatest possible breadth of idioms and styles. The intention is to grow NW2 continuously over time, as a forum to bridge Seattle’s diverse creative music communities and provide opportunities for individual artists who don’t ordinarily work together to conspire, collaborate, explore, and celebrate.
