Loretto Project

LAM hosts national composition workshop

Dates: August 10-11 and 17-18, 2019 (inclusive)

Location: Louisville Academy of Music, University of Louisville

Pathways participants are talented young performers who may not yet identify as composers, but are passionately curious about creating their own music. The 2019 Pathways instruction team includes Dr. Allison Ogden, composer/performers Jecorey Arthur and Rachel Grimes, members of Longleash, and Loretto Project composer fellows Derek Carter (U. of L.), Sunbin Kim (Manhattan School of Music), Lucy McKnight (USC), and Ayanna Woods (Yale Univ.)


Participants will practice basic tools, techniques and approaches that will help them articulate their own musical ideas and enable them to pursue further explorations in composition. Topics covered will include improvisation, theory and form, style, and extended techniques. Over the course of two weekends, students will participate in group workshops, receive individual instruction, and will share a completed miniature composition for their own instrument by the final session of the workshop.

The Pathways Initiative will take place over four days, from August 10-11 and 17-18, and will be hosted at the Louisville Academy of Music and U. of L.’s Bird Recital Hall.
