C4 Announces PREMIERES: Choral Composition Workshops
C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective is pleased to announce PREMIERES, a series of two workshops intended to foster growth in choral composition. C4 will present the selected works in public concerts on Saturday, October 13 and Saturday, December 1, 2018 in New York City.
The PREMIERES workshops will offer composers the opportunity to have their piece rehearsed and performed by the C4 Ensemble in New York City, receiving guidance from the group along the way. The nature of these workshops will allow for composers to make changes to their score as needed throughout the rehearsal process, culminating in a New York City premiere and concert recording of their piece. Space is limited, but all submitted scores will be considered. If you are unable to travel to New York City, you will be able to take part in the workshops remotely.

Their subtly attuned awareness of each others' musical movements makes their technical virtuosity seem near effortless.
They seem to revel in the challenges other choirs avoid like the plague. ... The group's dynamic is a lesson in exceeding expectations.
