My composition O Cool is the Valley Now has been selected for performance on Monday October 21 at the 2013 Aries Composers Festival! The three-day festival is hosted by Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, and will include several new compositions by composers from all across the country (many of whom seem to have their doctorates and several major performances already!), and the featured Guest Composer will be Michael Colgrass.
Needless to say, I feel very honored by this opportunity to have my music performed and heard halfway across the country at a new music festival alongside so many talented composers. I further look forward to hearing what the performers are able to do with my piece.
