About: Composers Forums are central to the Walden School experience, where new music is presented in a concert setting, and each new work’s premiere is followed immediately by dialogue between the composer(s), performer(s), audience, and the moderator(s). Alumni of Walden’s programs range in age from 10-100, with professional composers, student composers, serious amateur composers, hobbyists, and everything in between. A range of styles and genres is welcome and encouraged.
