About Music With A View 2012


Music With A View was developed in response to the need for emerging and established composers to have place to fine-tune and present their works-in-progress. Each Music With A View event features the works of 2-3 emerging and/or mid-career composers and each performance will be followed by an open discussion between the artists and the audience, moderated by musician Kathleen Supové and other leaders in the field of music. Admission is FREE.
