Performance | Transcendence to Modern


The UMKC Composition Workshop offers composers of all levels an opportunity to broaden their horizons and hone their craft, through a mix of classes and small group session with UMKC composition faculty and guest composers.

This year, the Workshop’s premier performance will take place in the Nelson-Atkin’s Medieval Cloister, on Sunday June 17 at 1 pm. Through a partnership with the Kansas City Electronic Music and Arts Alliance, composers have created new works that not only draw direct inspiration from Cloister’s 14th Century French monastic setting, but also utilize modern technology to bring fresh life to old styles.
