STEP 5

FINAL CONCERT / RECORDING

Fall 2021

Trio Estatico will meet in the fall to perform and/or record the final  works (depending on conditions). Each composer will be limited to about  5 minutes due to the number of participating composers. Composers are  encouraged to try and keep their pieces to 5 minutes in length;  however, if a participating composer writes a piece that is longer than  5 minutes, we will work with those composers to select a 5 minute  excerpt.
