We are delighted to welcome loadbang for two days of workshops with our undergraduate, masters and PhD composition students, who have written works especially for this occasion.

Formed in New York City in 2008, loadbang is a quartet of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Dedicated to performing contemporary music, they have been praised as ‘cultivated’ by The New Yorker, ‘an extra-cool new music group’ and ‘exhilarating’ by the Baltimore Sun, ‘inventive’ by the New York Times and called a 'formidable new-music force' by TimeOutNY. They have performed in New York City at Miller Theater, Symphony Space, MATA and the Look and Listen Festival; around America at Da Camera of Houston, Rothko Chapel, and the Festival of New American Music at Sacramento State University; and internationally at Ostrava Days (Czech Republic), China-ASEAN Music Week (China) and Shanghai Symphony Hall (China). Loadbang has premiered more than 300 works, written by members of the ensemble, emerging artists, and today's leading composers. 

Free admission. All are welcome to attend.
