CUSO Congratulates Composers Selected for the Reading Session!
The Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce the selection of three new works for the February 23rd Music Alive Composers Institute Reading Session! The winners are:
Stephen Caldwell – Summer Soiree: Prelude II
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, doctoral student
Hunter Chang – Memories of Tragedy and Hope
Northwestern University, undergraduate student
Brian Hinkley – Of Love and Distance
Illinois State University, master’s student
These composers will have their works rehearsed and performed by the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra in a Reading Session on Saturday, February 23, 2019, from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. This event is free and the public is invited to attend to see the dynamic process used to bring new orchestral music to life. Maestro Stephen Alltop will conduct the orchestra through each of the three composers’ pieces, and Dr. Stacy Garrop will introduce the composer to the audience prior to the orchestra’s rehearsing of each work. Both Maestro Alltop and Dr. Garrop will provide feedback to the composer during the session. There will be a brief question-and-answer session with each composer and the audience after the reading of the composer’s piece.
