Here are five of the Rocky Mountain Composers' group - at our monthly meeting in Boulder at LePeep's.
We usually have two meetings per month - the first being a business meeting. Often we are planning for the next composers' competition event, where we accept scores for different age groups from 6 years old on up. Watch for the notice about the next one. Info comping soon.
Then we often have a second meeting at my house, during which we talk about our first love - music. We share scores of things we are working on and critique each other.
I must say that this is one great group of people. I have never seen petty competitve attitudes get in the way of our time together. We are all interested in and supportive of each others' efforts. It's the best it could possibly be. Those meetings are always an inspiration!
