What is a Composium?

It’s like a concert, plus a master class, plus a competition. It’s informative, dramatic, and entirely thrilling. Witness an amazing afternoon of excitement, drama, and music.

In the first session, the winning chamber ensemble compositions are performed by symphony musicians. Each composer is interviewed by Maestro Wilkins and comments are given by the judges and musicians.

After a brief intermission, the full orchestra session starts. The performance of each winning full-orchestra composition begins with an audio excerpt from the young composer’s computer-generated MIDI score. Next, the composition is rehearsed, giving the composer an opportunity to interact with Maestro Wilkins, the orchestra musicians, and the judges. Each session ends with the final recorded performance of the composition.
