Part of the 9th Annual Virginia Arts Festival, the Composers Institute is committed to the creation and performance of new music. Dr. Carrillo's composition, Algunas metáforas que aluden al tormento, a la angustia y a la Guerra, received its world premiere January 22 at New York City's Carnegie Hall, and was deemed "fetching" and "alive" by the New York Times.

Carrillo and up to nine other Composer Fellows were selected by recommendation from top artists and educators.  Each will have the opportunity to spend two weeks in residence studying under master composers (including Mark Adamo, John Corigliano, Tania León and Billy Taylor), writing new works, and having their works read by various Virginia Arts Festival composers.  The Institute will be directed by John Duffy, two-time Emmy Award  winner and founder and past president of Meet the Composer.
