MATA presents its third annual MATA Jr. Festival in conjunction with the Kaufman Music Center’s teen new-music ensemble Face the Music. As a part of the festival, seven young composers selected from a global call-for-submissions were paired with MATA alumni composer-mentors Žibuoklė Martinaitytė, Sam Pluta, and Alex Weiser and asked to write new works for ensembles ranging from trio to full orchestra.
This program is supported in part by the ASCAP Foundation and Bernstein Family Foundation.
