Annual Report

  • Year: 
    2016
  • Please describe your organization’s activities over the past year, including concerts, commissions, collaborations, publications: 

    Stephen F. Austin State University School of Music is a Full Associate Member representing the composers of the State of Texas.

    Our School of Music has over 450 undergraduate and graduate music majors and approximately 50 faculty members. With over twenty large and small ensembles ranging from full orchestra to saxophone quartet and steel drum band, the School of Music presents hundreds of concerts each year. While we do not maintain a list of contemporary performances or premieres, the faculty as a whole embraces new music and most performances include at least one piece by a living composer.

    We have a thriving composition program with student composers winning awards, getting published, and scoring films. Some ensembles run annual competitions for student works, and all composition majors are easily able to have performances of their pieces. We collaborate with the University of Tasmania in Australia to provide students at both institutions with the opportunity to study abroad.

    Since our university represents the entire state of Texas to the ISCM, we run an annual state-wide competition to select the six works to be submitted to the organizers.

    With a population of over 27 million and some of the USA's best music schools, the State of Texas is at the forefront of contemporary music creation and performance. Our SFASU activities in ISCM attempt to bring some of this vibrant music to the broader international community.
