We are a collective of self-publishing wind ensemble, concert band, orchestra, and string ensemble composers, writing music that aids instrumental music educators in engaging students, developing student skills, and meeting classroom goals.
Katherine Bergman is a Minnesota-based composer who draws on literature, environmentalism, and found materials to create music that has been described as hypnotic and visceral.
