GC Composers is a student organization dedicated to supporting the work of doctoral (Ph.D./DMA) candidates in music composition at The Graduate Center (CUNY). Founded and maintained by composers in the program, the GC Composers presents regular concerts of new works and invites collaborations with performers and ensembles, both from within CUNY schools and from New York City’s new music community. The goal of the organization is to provide a venue for doctoral composers in the program to develop productive relationships with performers and ensembles by fostering an open and productive collaborative environment. The culmination of these annual collaborations are free public concerts, taking place in Elebash Recital Hall at the Graduate Center, and other CUNY venues.
Our past collaborations have included residencies by PinkNoise, Loadbang, Jack Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Contemporaneous, Either/Or, C4: The Choral Composer Conductor Collective, Mise-En, The Curiosity Cabinet, the Da Capo Chamber Players, TACETi, Talea, and soloists Gleb Kanasevich, Miranda Cuckson, and John Ferrari.
