Detroit Composers’ Project is a new collaboration focused on building performance opportunities in Detroit for new music and new artists. The project aims to cultivate relationships between composers and performers to present performances of new works.
What ARE we?
Right, now, we are classifying ourselves as an organized collaboration. DCP is managed and curated by an artistic committee of composers, performers, and community collaborators who have set roles and responsibilities and meet regularly to discuss opportunities for performances, funding, and community collaborations.
As we are still in the early stages of this project, we are managing relationships between community partners, local artists, and contemporary music advocates, in hopes of building a small season of performances and toolbox of collaboration-models, focused on celebrating composers and performers in the community and providing more outlets for regional and national creatives to collaborate on new music performances in Detroit.
What are we DOING?
Our first concert was on September 9 at the Detroit Institute of Arts and featured new works by 7 Detroit-area composers. Our next performances are scheduled for December 16 and December 19.
We plan to present 4 performances during the 18-19 year, all featuring world premieres, works-in-progress, multi-disciplinary pieces, etc. by Detroit-area composers and performers.
