Mathew Rosenblum will be one of five Senior Faculty Composers at this year’s June in Buffalo Festival and Conference. In addition to offering master classes and lectures about his music, Rosenblum will have three works (Maggies, Circadian Rhythms, and Under the Rainbow) performed by the New York New Music Ensemble, the Verge Ensemble, and faculty members of the University of Buffalo’s Department of Music.
Presented by the University of Buffalo’s Department of Music and The Robert and Carol Morris Center for 21st Century Music, June in Buffalo, a festival and conference dedicated to composers, will take place from June 1–7, 2009 at the University of Buffalo. The festival and conference offers an intensive schedule of seminars, lectures, master classes with selected faculty composers, workshops, professional presentations, participant forums and open rehearsals as well as afternoon and evening concerts open to the general public and critics.
Joining the faculty and performers will be 20 composition students from around the world. The festival offers these students the rare opportunity to work with top musicians and world-class faculty in an intimate and casual environment. Each student composer rehearses one of his or her pieces with resident musicians in a professional setting, culminating in a public performance.
