The final project is an original composition in a large-scale form: orchestra piece, wind quintet, string quartet, song cycle or choral cantata. The student will choose the particular medium and form in consultation with the professor. A defense of the composition before a panel of three faculty members will take place at the completion of the project. Required of all composition majors in the senior year, the course is taken one semester for a full credit or spread over two semesters for .5 credits each.
