The Western Michigan University Student Composer Alliance empowers students to shape the activities of the composition program at Western Michigan University and facilitates the development of entrepreneurial skills. We are dedicated to promoting the creation and performance of new music at WMU and in the greater Kalamazoo area. Students meet in a weekly roundtable to discuss event production, new ideas for growth, topics related to composition and musical aesthetics. Additionally, the chapter is responsible for organizing the four student composer concerts that occur at WMU each year and initiating collaborative projects involving new works by student composers. Student composers support and challenge each other, and grow together as a community.
