"it's on the edge of what's happening" - Brant Lyon, Great Weather for Media
Composer’s Voice is a chamber concert providing a venue for composers to get their works heard. Its first performance in 2001, Composer’s Voice has premiered hundreds of works in more than 150 performances. Its focus is to present compositions by living composers by musicians who champion new music.
Composer's Voice is an opportunity for contemporary composers to express their aesthetic and personal "voice."
Works are chosen from a wide range of contemporary composers and performed by dedicated musicians devoted to new music. Composer's Voice has presented the works of hundreds of living composers from around the world.
Concerts are recorded and archived to further promote the new music, performers and composers. Audio, video scores, and programs can be found on the Vox Novus website.
Composer's Voice is also the home for Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame; this is an innovative project highlighting musicians who champion new music as well as present and promote the works of hundreds of composers.
Vox Novus believes strongly in the intrinsic value of contemporary music, recognizing it as a force in the advancement of culture and art. Our goal is to keep music alive by strengthening the connection between composer and audience, providing greater exposure to new music.
