ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Each year, The Rivers School Conservatory in Weston, MA presets a three-day festival of faculty performances, student recitals, and composition workshops all focused on contemporary music.
Now celebrating its 40th Anniversary, the seminar has presented 3,009 new pieces, representing more than 1,790 composers and 664 premieres, including 190 commissioned pieces. Each seminar’s programming is unique; pieces are performed only once, so that repertoire, composed within the last 25 years, is constantly being explored. The idea of young performers, composers, and audiences interacting with one another in an artistic and creative way has sparked the imagination of educators and has become the model for many such events throughout the United States and the world.
