About the Aries Composers Festival
The three-day event welcomes renowned composers from throughout the U.S. and abroad. Originally known as the Rocky Mountain Contemporary Music Festival, many world-famous composers, music theorists, musicologists, and other researchers interested in new music have visited and worked with CSU students in rehearsals, concerts, lectures, panels, and masterclasses, including most recently Michael Daugherty and Libby Larsen.
