American Composers Orchestra’s Composers OutFront! Puts composers onstage, bringing audiences closer to the creative process.
ACO’s Van Lier Fellowship gives young composers the opportunity to work with ACO artistic and administrative leadership in honing their professional skills, participating in planning educational activities and performances, and serving as liaison with student composers and enhancing their professional careers by immersing themselves in the professional environment of ACO over the course of the entire season. The fellowship is designed to provide a career – development bridge between a young composer’s training at the University or Conservatory and the world of the professional orchestra.
Angelica Negron’s ACO fellowship was made possible by the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund and Musical Arts Fund of the New York Community Trust. ACO’s emerging composers project is made possible with the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts. Additional Funding provided by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation for EarShot’s women composers’ initiative.
