May 8 Concert and May 9 Recording Session a Great Success!

Our final concert of Season 41 on May 8, 2016, “All Water Has a Perfect Memory”, was a tremendous success!  Our featured guest composer David Dzubay returned to conduct two of his works, “All Water Has a Perfect Memory” and “Producing for a While”, two amazing pieces which we recorded the following day in a local studio, to be featured on a fabulous new CD available in a few months.  We will announce the debut of this recording here on our website and will make it available to you as soon as it is ready for you to enjoy.

We also held our annual Young Composers symposium before the concert and we performed the music of our four talented finalists.  David and Artistic Director Maria Schleuning led a discussion with the composers after hearing each of the four pieces performed and the performers, along with David and Maria, provided feedback and commentary to each composer about their music.

This was the perfect ending to an incredible season and allowed us to fulfill our serious commitment to provide our loyal patrons (and new patrons!) with the best possible new music in Dallas, and to encourage both young and veteran composers to continue to believe that this is an art form that will continue to flourish.
