Composers Collaboative Inc. (CCi) began in 1987 as the brainchild of a few friends who shared a common passion for new music and getting the word out. Since 1994, CCi's Solo Flights festival has provided a forum chiefly for solo pianist who champion a broad range of new music styles and philosophies. The festival also gives voice to an international scope of new works by young composers, emerging and emerged alike...

The music in your hands is live and unspliced. What Solo Flights audiences have shared for the past seven seasons is exactly what you hear, from different pianos and venues, as it occurred, in the moment. Sometimes the composer happens to be the pianist. Other times the composer is sitting among the intimate gathering of music lovers. Afterwards an informal dialogue further binds artists and audience together. Questions and comments elicit unexpected insights, a few trade secrets, and a treasure trove of anecdotes. As another typical Solo Flights program wraps up, the good-byes, thanks yous, and let's stay in touches take their sweet time.
