Susan Horvath CMW Commission Fund
Please give to the Chamber Music Workshop’s Susan Horvath Commission Fund. An anonymous donor will match all donations up to a total of $2000. We hope you will support this exceptional project!
This fund was created in memory of Susan Horvath, who deeply believed in commissioning exceptional new music for amateur chamber musicians. We are deeply grateful for all the time, love and effort over all the years that Susan put into making the Conference a collaborative, inclusive environment, and will continue her legacy through this initiative.
This project supports the commission of a new work each year by a Fromm Foundation Composer Fellow. The new piece will be performed by an ensemble made up of a combination of CMW participants, Contemporary Performance Institute Fellows and Conference faculty. The work will be conducted by our Davidovsky Conductor Fellow and rehearsals will be coached by our newly appointed Music Director, Vimbayi Kaziboni. This unique collaboration brings together all the parts of the Conference.
The 2022 Susan Horvath CMW Commission recipient is 2020/21 Fromm Foundation Composer Fellow Erin Busch.
