Composition

旧金山音乐学院-作曲

作曲系既尊重传统又鼓励创新。

作曲系四位教师不仅在自己的作曲职业生涯里继续创作高质量作品,同时给予学生最专业指导。作曲系非常强调跨部门合作,为作曲系学生所创作的作品找到适合演绎的其他学生。

每一年,SFCM都会举办Highsmith Competition,获奖者的作品将由学校管弦乐团进行演绎。学生可以利用旧金山丰富多彩的音乐生活,这里是半个世纪以来最具开创性的音乐活动的发源地。

作曲系学生目前不仅获得了与知名乐团合作的机会,还在各大作曲比赛获奖无数,比如作曲09级学生Ilya Demutsky与旧金山芭蕾舞蹈团合作、作曲17级学生Matt Boehler获得了NATS Art Song Competition Award。2018年,3名作曲系学生Nicholas Denton与Ashlyn Herd、Hao Wu合作,获得了第二届年度Kristin Pankonin Award。
