Composers’ Salon

During FWT 2012, music faculty member Kitty Brazelton invited professional singers and music students to her home to workshop students' compositions, explore the composing process, and eat homemade apple pie. At Bennington, students work in close collaboration with faculty members who themselves are actively practicing in their fields. This teacher-practitioner model helps students discover their distinctive intellectual passions and drives their work in the most compelling directions.
