In Fall 2017, three students ranging from high school through graduate school were selected to participate in the Women Composers Festival of Hartford’s redesigned student workshop. Over the winter, the students attended in-person sessions with workshop leader Dr. Jessica Rudman and received online mentoring as they composed new pieces for string quartet. Their work will culminate in a public reading session with the WCF’s ensemble-in-residence Cuatros Puntos.
During the session, Cuatro Puntos will workshop the pieces, offer advice on idiomatic compositional techniques for strings as well as what attracts them to a new work. This year’s participants are:
June Violet Aino
Emily Joy Sullivan
