The AMF Composition Program is a six-week intensive summer course designed to provide extraordinary opportunities and exposure to aspiring and established composers. The program engages composers through individual lessons, daily seminars, and masterclasses.
Since its inception, the Atlantic Music Festival has served as a breeding ground for groundbreaking new works. Over 300 new works have been premiered since 2009 offering composers access to unprecedented opportunities. Composers gain firsthand experience by working directly with AMF Contemporary Ensemble with a goal of premiering a new work. In addition, all full-session composers are eligible to participate in AMF Orchestra Reading sessions.
The AMF Institute is proud to continue its tradition of providing all Composition Program participants with access to the AMF Future Music Lab’s core seminars. This groundbreaking project is an official collaboration with the IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique) and will offer unique courses such as Programming for Musicians, MaxMSP Bootcamp, and electronic music seminars.
