about HCA

who we are:

The Harvard Composers Association is a forum for Harvard's undergraduate composers to exchange ideas and share their passion for the creation of new music. We welcome composers of all backgrounds and styles, and our concerts present rich, diverse musical palettes for our composers to present their works.

what we do:

  • Share and discuss student compositions at our biweekly meetings.
  • Host masterclasses featuring professional working composers.
  • Organize several concerts a year, with student and professional musicians performing members' compositions.
  • Provide a central hub for compositional activity on campus.

Meetings held remotely are password-protected, with the passwords being sent over our mailing list.
