OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We are a group of composers based all around the world actively providing new experiences for audiences, performers, and artists everywhere. Creating fresh and engaging new music for all types of ensembles and mediums, we strive to push the limits of what defines music and art through experimental, conventional, and interdisciplinary means.
The Millennium Composers Initiative was founded by composers Josh Trentadue and Duncan Petersen-Jones in 2018. Currently comprising 39 members across the globe, MCI supports and represents young composers at the beginning of their professional careers, regardless of their aesthetic, style, or background.
MCI has collaborated with artists and ensembles around the world to foster new creative opportunities for our members and stimulate the growth of new music in vitally important communities. Our members have additionally been represented at events including The Midwest Clinic International Band and Orchestra Conference, the North American Saxophone Alliance Conference, and the Texas Music Educators Association conference.
The members of MCI have additionally received representation, award recognition, commission and collaborative opportunities, and more from internationally-renowned publishing companies, festivals, conferences, competitions, ensembles, and artists.
