In Dialogue is a unique series which takes place from July to January.  5 concerts with a central work from an established composer along with premieres of new works written in response. Corresponding talks and workshops explore the instrumentation of the central works and the composers behind them.  These events serve to enhance the musical discourse between the composers of now and then.
