The Cleveland Composers Guild

The Cleveland Composers Guild is one of the nation’s oldest new music organizations, and has had over 200 composer members over its more than fifty year history. Over the past half-century, the CCG has built an enviable record of supporting new music, with recordings on the CRI, Crystal, Advent, and Capstone labels, and publication series from Ludwig and Galaxy. There are currently about 40 professional composers in the Guild and each concert features a wide range of musical styles. In recent years the Guild has collaborated with the Cleveland Opera Theater, The Syndicate For The New Arts, Cleveland Ballet, the Rocky River Chamber Music Society, the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society, and with various local artists to create multi-disciplinary concerts that engage with the arts in a new way.  The CCG produces numerous live concerts every season featuring the finest performers available in Northeast Ohio, and all concerts are free-of-charge. In addition to regular series programs, the Guild produces an annual Junior Concert in tandem with the Music Settlement in University Circle. Pre-college age students perform music written for them by Guild members and compose original music as well; it's a great way to encourage the next generation of musicians to love new music.
