Curtis Bryant Wins Atlanta Faith Partners Residency

Congrats to Curtis Bryant for winning the Atlanta Faith Partners Residency!

ATLANTA FAITH PARTNERS RESIDENCY – Curtis Bryant has been chosen as the Composer-in-Residence for the Atlanta Faith Partners project sponsored by the American Composers Forum. Beginning in September, he will work with three Atlanta congregations – Cathedral of Christ the King, First Presbyterian Church, and Lutheran Church of the Redeemer – to write new works unique to each congregation, as well as several pieces that all three will share. The participating congregations were chosen on the basis of their interest in and commitment to performing new music, their diversity, and their potential congruence. Established in 1992, the Faith Partners residencies are emblematic of the American Composers Forum's efforts to build bridges between composers and already existing audiences that have lacked exposure to contemporary music but are highly receptive to it. Several congregations that participated in the program have continued to commission new works with their own funds following the conclusion of the residency period, indicating that the program has sparked a durable enthusiasm for new music.

Atlanta Composers MySpace

Dear readers,

The Atlanta Composers MySpace page has not been updated with new music in quite some time. If you would like to be featured, please send an mp3 to atlantacomposers@yahoo.com. I would especially love to hear from people who have not yet had a piece featured! I will upload your piece to the page, and if you have a MySpace profile, I will move you to the top friends for even more visibility!

cheers,
