MFA in Music Composition offering free portfolio reviews for composers

The MFA in Music Composition program has announced a free portfolio review for all composers interested in applying to the College or furthering their compositional work. 

bannerThe submission period runs until April 20, 2017. One of our faculty members with VCFA’s MFA in Music Composition program will review each portfolio and offer suggestions, critique, and responses to specific pieces by early May. This valuable feedback will benefit both emerging and established composers as they work to improve their portfolio for applications to the College or for their own personal practice. 

“If you are considering a graduate degree program in music composition, compiling a portfolio and receiving feedback on your music is an excellent place to start,” says Jonathan Bailey Holland, Faculty Chair of the MFA in Music Composition.

Please submit three original compositions (sound files and accompanying scores) and a brief artist statement by April 20 to our submission site. Participation is free and limited to the first 25 submissions.

For more information about the portfolio review, contact Sarah Madru, assistant program director. She can be reached by email at Sarah.Madru@vcfa.edu or by phone at (802) 828-8534.
