New Music on the Point

  • Leicester, VT

JACK's summer home in Vermont, New Music on the Point is a contemporary chamber music institute for composers and performers. For two weeks each June, thirty young composers and twenty young performers work side-by-side with JACK on the preparation and performance of thirty new chamber works in addition to existing contemporary music. New Music on the Point invites a young string quartet to be on fellowship each summer so that they may study intensively with JACK on the interpretation of existing contemporary works as well as several new works. It's a truly magical experience all around!
