Who are the 2022 PTG composers? Click on each name below to learn more! 

Earlier this year Wayland School of Music commissioned six professional composers from traditionally under-represented groups (e.g. Indigenous, Black, LGBTQ, Latinx) to write new music for student ensembles. 

They are excited to work with this new generation of young musicians, and have written the students wonderful new music inspired by their own life experiences and cultural influences.

Our students have enjoyed meeting and working with them, and through informal discussion, have expanded their awareness of who writes music, and why they write it. They are looking forward to giving the world premiere performance of their composers' new music!
