ARTZenter Institute is a newly-established grant program in partnership with the SF Contemporary Players, encouraging the creation of new music that explores the power and grace of the traditional orchestral ensemble. The fund was created by Tony Magee, founder of The Lagunitas Brewing Company of Petaluma, CA, and is committed to creating chamber orchestra workshops, mentorship and performance opportunities for young composers nationwide. The Emerging Composer Completion Grant Program has the potential to evolve into one of the nation’s largest and most ambitious vehicles in support of new work, with multiple calls-for-scores being announced annually.

Featuring the winning composers from ARTZenter’s third round of completion grants from June 2024, we present a public reading and lab session of six newly completed works for chamber orchestra, as the kick-off event in this exciting new program’s second year.

  • Laura Cetilia - Another Ever (2024)
  • Sofia Ouyang - New Work (Title TBD) (2024)
  • Luca Robadey - Stained Glass (2024)
  • Ethan Solodad - Cages of Jade (2024)
  • Chawin Temsittichok - Infinite Swipe (2024)
  • Max Vinetz - Color in Motion (2024)
