New Music On The Point
June 4-18, 2017

 

 

The New Music On The Point Festival encourages imaginative collaboration among composers, instrumentalists, and singers

Our two-week program fosters collaborative music-making in a relaxing environment where aspiring musicians may explore and grow, creating contemporary music in a glorious setting on the shores of Lake Dunmore.

The NMOP 2017 Festival is open to participants (ages 18-35) in the following areas:

  • • composition
  • • voice
  • • strings
  • • winds
  • • saxophone
  • • piano
  • • percussion NEW!
  • • classical guitar
  • • string quartet
  • • chamber ensembles (2-5 players) NEW!

The 2017 Faculty are…

Master Artists

During our program, all participants engage in an interactive schedule of instruction, rehearsals, seminars and concerts. Every day there is time for composing, practicing, rehearsing and spontaneous musical experiences. Each of the participating composers will have his/her new work premiered on the final concerts of the New Music On The Point Festival.

Composer participants will work closely with faculty composers and Master Artists. They give individual lessons as well as coaching chamber works and presenting seminars on their professional work. Faculty performers “coach from within” on the participant composer works.

JACK Quartet

JACK Quartet

A string quartet will be chosen by audition to attend NMOP as our quartet-in-residence. This group will be coached by the JACK Quartet and will perform several works, written for them by NMOP participant composers. They will also perform repertoire pieces on the Salon concerts and at community events.

New Music On The Point is situated right on Lake Dunmore, VT, beneath the Green Mountains, and under a nighttime sky filled with stars. There are teaching/rehearsal studios and practice cabins that dot the woods, most with lake views, and rustic sleeping bunk bed cabins. Chef Steve and his staff serve locally-sourced, sometimes foraged, gourmet meals daily!
