Composers’ Forum

The Composers’ Forum is a weekly meeting for faculty members, students, and interested members of the public to discuss music composition and related topics. Several times a year, the Composers’ Forum brings distinguished guest composers to the Cornell campus.

Forum meetings take place on Fridays at 1:25 PM in the Alfred E. Kahn Seminar Room, room 316, within the Sidney Cox Library of Music and Dance (main entrance at 220 Lincoln Hall), except where noted. All meetings are open to the public.
