The Los Angeles Philharmonic and the International Contemporary Ensemble invited composers ages 18-30 from all backgrounds to submit examples of their work to be considered as participants in the National Composers Intensive. The program selected seven composers who workshopped their pieces in both New York and in Los Angeles. The composers will culminate their intensive in a performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
