Applications are now being accepted for the 32nd First Music Commissioning Season! Julia Wolfe, a former First Music winner, will head the Jury for the Orchestra and Chamber commissions and Rufus Reid will head the Jazz Jury.
First Music has awarded commissions to 102 of America’s best young composers since 1984. The winner of numerous awards and accolades, this ongoing project introduces traditional audiences, as well as the musicians themselves, to new trends in music.
