2018 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
The 2018 Mizzou International Composers Festival will feature 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," the group will work intensively with eight resident composers—selected from an international pool of applicants—on the premieres of new works.
Additionally, this year’s festival will feature distinguished guest composers Alex Mincek (Chicago, IL) and Chen Yi (Kansas City, MO), who will have several works performed and will coach the resident composers. Alarm Will Sound will perform an arrangement of Chen’s Sparkle— a musical impression of flying sparks inspired by traditional Chinese music—as well as the preview of a large-scale work by Alex Mincek commissioned by Alarm Will Sound.
Finally, the festival will feature performances by the Mizzou New Music Ensemble and University of Missouri faculty, in works by Chen, Mincek, and other composers affiliated with the festival and the University of Missouri.
