2017 GUIDE TO FESTIVALS

Mizzou International Composers Festival
Mizzou International Composers Festival
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The MICF is the only contemporary music festival on an international scale in the state of Missouri. At no other festival in the country can you hear the world premieres of eight new works by rising young composers performed by one of the most highly-regarded ensembles in the country.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Ensemble-in-Residence Alarm Will Sound, hailed by the New York Times as “one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American scene,” will work intensively with eight resident composers—selected from an international pool of applicants—on the premieres of new works. The festival will feature guest composers Dan Visconti (Chicago, IL) and Georg Friedrich Haas (Graz, Austria), who will have several works performed and coach the resident composers. Alarm Will Sound will perform Haas’s Remix as well as the world premiere of Visconti’s Psychedelia, an unconventional encore that accumulates in energy as the ensemble passes along a simple chant line. Also on the schedule are performances by the Mizzou New Music Ensemble and University of Missouri faculty in works by Haas, VIsconti, and festival directors Stefan Freund and W. Thomas McKenney.
