Conservatory DMA composition student Nick Omiccioli was selected for the Under Construction New Music Readings, directed by Joana Carneiro, co-presented by EarShot and the Berkeley Symphony.  Omiccioli is one of four composers selected.

During the February reading session, composers will be encouraged to test-drive excerpts of a work-in-progress, with differently orchestrated and/or differently-paced versions of these excerpts. After hearing the work-in-progress and receiving feedback from the conductor, mentor-composers, and musicians from Berkeley Symphony, composers can revise and complete the work for the second session in May. Composers will receive artistic and career guidance from the Symphony artistic staff, orchestra musicians, and mentor-composers Derek Bermel (ACO Artistic Director), Edmund Campion, and Robert Beaser.

Congratulations!
