Outreach & Education

Brightwork newmusic believes in giving back to the new music community. We work closely with young musicians and composers across the West Coast. Our goal is to empower the next generation of artists through residencies with youth orchestras and universities, student composer readings, masterclasses and workshops, and our High School Composer Initiative.
