New Music Reading Sessions

New music reading sessions provide a glimpse of new music publications available for each type of ensemble.  Attendees have the advantage of listening to professional musicians as they introduce new works and perform a portion of each piece for a live audience.  The level of music ranges from easy to difficult and each session presents a variety of styles, composers, and publishers.  Please bring a pen to take notes about each piece you like and plan to visit with our music publishing companies onsite for more information.*
