Hosted by the Metro State Department of Music on the Auraria Campus, the Playground’s annual CoCoCo showcases chamber music written by residents of Colorado. Now in its 6th year CoCoCo has featured 49 works by 39 different Colorado-based composers including a number of K-12 composers. Each year one composer is selected to receive a commission to compose a new work specifically for the Playground. Watch our web site for the next deadline and be sure to alert any composers you know to this opportunity.
