Illinois Wesleyan University Residence Wrap Up

As part of my Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra’s Music Alive residence, I spent the past few days at Illinois Wesleyan University. I gave a seminar to composition students on the business of being a composer, taught composition lessons, and rehearsed my works with students and faculty. The highlight of the residence was their New Music Café concert, which featured music by living composers, with three of us in attendance. I was thrilled with the performances of my Tango Gardél (solo piano) and We Real Cool (soprano and piano). Many thanks to composer and pianist David Vayo for hosting me, and to everyone for a wonderful visit to Bloomington, Illinois!

With composers David Vayo, Marcos Lucas, and Kyle Shaw
