This annual concert of new works by student composers, led by student conductors, and played by student musicians is often one of the most inspiring concerts of the year. This program provides an important and singular opportunity for composers and conductors to learn by working with one another and the musicians of the UPO in a collaborative process, while also being mentored by their principal composition and conducting teachers. An exciting opportunity for listeners to be among the first to hear these creative works and witness these collaborations, which often launch long lasting creative partnerships between student composers and the conductors.
