“The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra has announced the composers for the seventh NJSO Edward T. Cone Composition Institute, presented July 19–24 in Newark,” reads an unsigned article in Thursday’s (6/24) New Jersey Stage. “The composers include Elise Arancio (Curtis Institute of Music) and her work Wake, Kevin Day (University of Georgia) and his work Tango Oscuro, Erin Graham (UC San Diego) and her work Increase, and Jared Miller (The Juilliard School) and his work Under Sea, Above Sky. The four composers will hear their music performed by the NJSO and participate in in-depth sessions with Institute Director Steven Mackey, guest conductor Ludovic Morlot and industry leaders including Boosey and Hawkes, New Music USA, Subito Music Corporation and speech and presentation coach Sims Wyeth. The NJSO and Morlot will present the participants’ works in concert at NJPAC in Newark on July 24 … The NJSO Edward T. Cone Composition Institute grew out of reading sessions the Orchestra has held with Princeton University graduate students biennially for more than a decade. The Institute celebrates its namesake Cone’s legacy as both a composer and a Princeton University professor.”
