Welcome to CompFest, the annual Harvard Student Composers Festival presented by the Office for the Arts with artistic director Veronica Leahy '23. The Spotlight Series takes place over three days and features commentary from esteemed professional composers in the field and performances of original work by student composers. In keeping with the CompFest spirit of inclusiveness and connections through music, the conversation around each piece also includes the audience. Join us for great music, engaging ideas and a spotlight on the creative process — all in a relaxed setting.  The annual event culminates in an all-student CompFest Cabaret.
