Call to Composers: Past MCC Music Composition Fellows

Reply By: January 12, 2015
Overview of the Project
The first Artist Fellowships funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts were awarded in 1975, making 2015 the 40th anniversary of the fellowships. The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) is celebrating this milestone by creating a series of short (3-5 minute) videos featuring interviews with select awardees from those 40 years.
MCC wants to integrate work by past MCC Music Composition Fellows into those short videos and would like to hear from past Fellows interested in sharing excerpts of their work in the 40 Years of Massachusetts Artist Fellowships project.
