Performance Opportunities 

In addition to the New Music Festival, the BGSU composition area boasts an active compositional environment. Our students have numerous opportunities to present their music each semester on such venues as the Student Composer Forum, student recitals and concerts, and events sponsored by Praecepta, our student chapter of the Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI). Student works have been read and performed by Alarm Will Sound, Brave New Works, the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, the Toledo Youth Orchestra, the Toledo Symphony String Quartet, and cellists Craig Hultgren and Madeline Shapiro (among others). In 2006 we initiated the DMA program in Contemporary Music, which provides even more performance opportunities for our undergraduate and masters students.
