New Music Workshop

June 22 – 30, 2018

(Applications for 2019 will be available in early November 2018)

Led by composer Martin Bresnick, the Norfolk New Music Workshop nurtures a philosophy of equal collaboration between composers and performers under the supervision of distinguished resident composers and guest Artist-Faculty. Fellows take part in a rigorous curriculum of coaching, master classes, rehearsals, discussions and performances. Ample time is allowed for composing and practicing. Each participant of the New Music Workshop will receive an Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship covering the full cost of tuition, housing and meals.

The Workshop is interactive in the truest sense, focusing on the process of musical creation and collaboration from concept to concert. Each composer will write a short work and collaborate on the compositions with performers over the course of the Workshop. All compositions are performed and recorded.

2018 Workshop is open to:
soprano saxophone (doubling tenor saxophone)
amplified guitar (electric preferred)
amplified double bass (or electric bass)


Martin Bresnick composer
