MATA Continued

MATA Continued is a new alumni-focused project devoted to giving composers previously presented by MATA the opportunities and tools to make larger artistic statements through longer-form concerts and special projects.  MATA Director Todd Tarantino explains, “MATA isn’t just a one-time thing. The third item of our mission statement is to ‘support’ early career composers.”  The MATA Continued initiative encompasses everything from fiscal sponsorship and promotional support to partnership on larger events.  If you are a MATA alum with a project in mind, send us an email at email hidden; JavaScript is required to start a conversation.
