#281 Composing in the Wilderness

Begun by composer Stephen Lias in 2012 Composing in the Wilderness is a “shared wilderness experience for adventurous composers at all levels.”

Participants spend two weeks in the wilds of Alaska drawing from that inspiration to write a new piece that will be performed at the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival.
