Composition at the University at Buffalo flourishes today, by providing a wide range of stimulating musical and intellectual experiences within a program that allows students the space to develop and mature. In an atmosphere that encourages musical and technological experiment, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and the development of authentic creative character, graduate composers at UB take advantage of a number of resources and opportunities.
