In 2014, the wildly popular International Contemporary Ensemble, under the direction of 2012 MacArthur fellow Claire Chase, will collaborate with CSIC to present educational workshops to high school students in the cities of New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. Students will hear ICE perform an original work by a resident composer, observe the working process of composer and performer, and engage in composing their own graphic notation piece. Members of CSIC in the cities of San Francisco and Washington D.C. will have the opportunity to apply as a composer-in-residence for this project.
