Welcome to CompWire, a festival of new music and student composers at UMBC, featuring ensembles in residence Strata and Voyager String Quartet! 
From April 7th to 18th, there will be a variety of concerts of new music including professional ensemble performances, eight senior recitals in one weekend, and more than 25 premieres! 

As a part of Compwire, UMBC and the University of Idaho  started an exchange project where composers from the universities were paired up to interview each other about their music in Spring 2021. After the interviews, each participant created a video or podcast to spotlight the composer and their music.

For more information about the composers and exchange, visit the CompWire website.
