Mission Statement

The GC Composers' Alliance is an organization dedicated to supporting the work of doctoral candidates in Music Composition at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). Founded and maintained by composers in the program, the Composers' Alliance presents regular concerts of new works and invites collaborations with performers and ensembles both from within CUNY and from New York's various, vibrant new music communities. The goal of the organization is thus to build bridges between composers, performers and audiences, while highlighting the musical activities of Graduate Center composers.
