The outHEAR Symposium and Master Class in composition is an intensive curriculum in composition. Our Composer Fellows work closely with the world-class performers of the Ensemble Klangforum Vienna and distinguished faculty, Klaus Lang, Dimitri Papageorgiou, and Orestis Toufektsis, in one-on-one lessons and mentoring, master classes, coaching, rehearsals, discussions, and performances.

During the first two days, composer fellows, faculty, and guest artists will also present their artistic research at the Symposium, an opportunity for all participants to share with each other their unique perspective on composition, techniques and innovations.
