The Loretto Project (August 11-15) is a celebration of adventurous new music at the Loretto Motherhouse in Nerinx, KY. The project includes a composition seminar led by Composer-In-Residence NILS VIGELAND, a public masterclass with MARC SATTERWHITE, 3 public performances, and a composition commission. Longleash (piano trio) will serve as project leaders and ensemble-in-residence. Inspired by the rich history of American contemporary music – music with deep roots in Kentucky and beyond — we are very excited to explore this tradition at Loretto, and in doing so, help establish an artistic dialogue across state lines, generations, and creative communities.

Our creative goals:
- to establish an annual musical exchange between our Kentucky and New York based audiences, and to reach new listeners in both communities
- to share diverse and exciting contemporary music with these audiences by supporting the work of NY and KY based working composers and the next generation of student composers
- to provide a meaningful cultural service to the central Kentucky region through high-quality, adventurous, and thoughtful programming
