Overview: In a sort of "public confessional," six veteran composers will share stories of lessons they learned in the professional trenches; lessons which are not typically highlighted in school. These stories will focus on challenges they faced and how/if they overcame them. The lessons range from technical to philosophical and are drawn from a wide range of types of projects.
