Today the Danish Composers’ Society held its annual summer party.

Composers can be an interesting bunch. These are people that have chosen to spend large amounts of their lives in their own company. That’s what it takes to create the things they do. There is of course the flip side of all those hours spent alone – intense rehearsal periods and close collaborations with musicians, music is after all a communicative, social art. And then there are gatherings like these: besides the networking and prizes and all of that, an opportunity to enjoy fine food and wine and connect with ones community.
