Monterey County Composers' Forum


Monterey County Composers' Forum

About Us


We are based on the Central Coast of California, and produce three concerts per year at Hidden Valley Music Seminars, featuring new music by local composers and songwriters. We are a non-profit, and we are open to all who would like to explore the rewarding art of writing and performing music.

The Monterey County Composer’s Forum is offering “Music From A Distance,” our first virtual, on-line concert, Sunday, July 19; the web site will remain active through August 2.  Music selections include solo songs, choral works, instrumental chamber music, and fixed media.  Composers include Dana Abbot, David Canright, Steve Ettinger, Paula Kaiser and Julie Roseman, Mary Lesher, Carleton Macy, Edward Moncrief, Douglas Ovens, Dale Victorine and Rick Yramategui.  Performers include a number of distinguished guest artists as well as some of the composers.


Web access:


Many of the selections are video performances linked to YouTube.  As with most MCCF concerts, a wide variety of musical styles are offered for you enjoyment.
