Composers Alliance of San Antonio (CASA) is the most active organization for composers in South Central Texas, regularly presenting concerts of its members’ music in venues throughout its home city. CASA was founded in 1999 when a group of San Antonio composers, many of them associated with the city’s universities, began to gather routinely, inspired by the idea of a French salon. CASA now partners regularly with local ensembles, institutions, teachers, and students to bring the best in new music to our region and beyond.
The “Made in SA” initiative, designed to encourage collaboration between student pianists, their teachers, and living composers, has led to the publication of four books (Made in SA I-IV, Kefāli Press). It has now expanded to include other instruments as well in an anual concert of the same name. Recent projects include an art song initiative SA24 with associated concerts and a documentary film, a project with ~Nois saxophone quartet, and several new collaborations in the works.
