Composers Interviewing Composers Series

These Composers Now-sponsored events feature live discourse among the festival event's featured composers, or, in cases when an event features one composer, a guest host/interviewer composer was selected by Composers Now Artistic Director Tania León. The discussion, hosted by the presenting organization, takes place before, during, or after the featured festival performance. All Composers Now Festival registrants were eligible for the new "Composers Interviewing Composers" initiative. Composers Now pays an honorarium to the participating composers.
