At the Charlotte New Music Festival

I’m please once again to be a part of the Charlotte New Music Festival as faculty composer (and have been for three years now). Working with graduate composers is always an interesting and engaging experience. Also working with such talented and dedicated performers as the Freya String Quartet and (as always) Anatoly Larkin is a fulfilling experience. Many thanks to all involved for this participation.

Charlotte New Music Festival

Ron Parks from Winthrop and John Allemeier from UNC, and I shared the program with some guy named Mahler. Working in concert with maestro Yamamoto were the Bechtler Ensemble and the Out of Bounds Ensemble for new music who both played a role in in making this concert a reality. A program of new classical works by living composers is a rare sighting in Charlotte. Perhaps this combined effort will begin to change that…
