Programs / EVERYEAR
One of the best measurements of Junior Composers' success is the durability of the connections between alumni.
We value friendships that continue for years. We promote collegial and professional relationships that celebrate each other's creative work. We seek ways to foster collaborations across generations of alumni.
And now there is a way for you to make these connections: EVERYEAR.
July 19-20, 2013
EVERYEAR 2013 is a celebration by and for Junior Composers alumni taking place during the final two days of Junior Composers Festival. Alums from every year gather to celebrate, recount, and reflect on the year and to imagine what lies ahead.
