Student Composers Association

IMG_4833.jpg
The Student Composers Association at the University of Georgia is home to more than twenty composers, including graduate and undergraduate students.  Writing for a diverse array of media, the composers at UGA create work ranging from symphonic to electronic music.  Students have access to cutting edge music technology and state of the art facilities in the Dancz Center for New Music.  All students participate in weekly private lessons from accomplished and experienced faculty, as well as a seminar for the discussion of pertinent and controversial issues in the field.  The association promotes the performance of student works through SCA Concerts and semi-annual Loop 10 concerts, where pieces have to be written and performed in two weeks.  In recent years, UGA composition has hosted seminars and masterclasses by Steven Stucky, Carter Pann, and Claude Baker.  UGA also hosted the University of Florida and Georgia State University in the the 2014 Southeastern New Music Symposium.
