2018 COMPOSING IN THE WILDERNESS

2018 was the first year we offered two separate options for participants.  The DENALI ADVENTURE followed our classic formula of five days in Denali National Park, three days at Twin Bears Camp, one night at Slaven's Roadhouse on the Yukon, then back to Fairbanks for rehearsals and performance.  The ARCTIC ADVENTURE took composers into the remote wilderness of Gates of the Arctic National Park where they canoed for a week on the North Fork of the Koyukuk River and then spent three days in Bettles, AK.  Their pieces will be premiered in New York City in November, 2018 at Federal Hall National Historic Site.
