The premier central contemporary music event in the Southwest that brings international composers and performers to UNM for concerts, seminars, master classes and public talks.

The 46th Annual John Donald Robb Composers' Symposium is set for Sunday – Thursday, March 26-30 at The University of New Mexico’s College of Fine Arts.

Hosted by the UNM Department of Music and the Robb Musical Trust, the Composers’ Symposium is a festival of contemporary music. It has been and continues to be one of the central contemporary music events in the U.S. Southwest bringing international composers and performers to the UNM campus for concerts, seminars, master classes, and public talks.

This year, 47 composers, 20 soloists and nine ensembles will participate in the nearly weeklong event. More than 350 composers from around the globe submitted 1,000+ pieces to be considered for performance. The UNM Music faculty helped make the choices. A few of the special guests include Iridium Quartet, Anne Harley and Barbara Pöschl-Edrich. Concerts will be held daily at 4 and 7 p.m.
