This year the Center will feature an exciting array of international artists, including Stockholm Chamber Brass, violinists Curt Macomber and Alexandra Greffen Klein, Mise En New Music Ensemble, and soprano Juliet Fraser; all artists will present concerts on music at the forefront of the contemporary music scene, and work directly with Buffalo composers during workshops for students.  Featured during our Vising Lecture Series will be renowned composers such as Mathew Rosenblum, Hans Thomalla, and Hilda Paredes.
