8th Annual Research on Contemporary Composition Conference
October 25 - 27, 2024

hosted by
The University of North Georgia, Department of Music
Gainesville Campus | Dahlonega Campus

The Research on Contemporary Composition (ROCC) is a conference dedicated to the recent activity of composers. In its seven years, it has featured the performances of 300+ new works (with more than 35 world premieres) representing composers worldwide. The conference was initiated by Dr. Esther Morgan-Ellis and Dr. David Peoples as an opportunity to present research on recent compositional activity. Music department students are a vital component of ROCC, featuring and bringing to light the works of many living composers through academic research. We are pleased to combine these scholarly activities into our yearly conference.
