THE COMPOSER'S INSTITUTE

AT THE LAKE GEORGE MUSIC FESTIVAL

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

Now entering its 5th season, the Composers Institute brings together some of the most promising young composers from across the country for a week of study and creative exchange. Under the mentorship of composer and Institute Director Alyssa Weinberg, students will attend a variety of seminars, masterclasses and private lessons, while being able to participate in the vibrant musical and social life of the Lake George Music Festival. Each selected composer will be asked to write a new work for string quartet, to be workshopped, performed and recorded by our ensemble-in-residence The Rhythm Method.
