Works by living composers are important to us, as well as compositions by American composers. This spring, we will bring to you “Little Bits,” a piece written in 2000 by Chicago composer Stacy Garrop, who is an associate professor of composition at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. Garrop will join us at the event and participate in a post-concert Q&A with the Artists.
We will also present three other American composers: Bernard Herrmann, most famous for his film music, including the theme for Psycho; Peter Schickele, best-known as his comedic alter-ego P.D.Q. Bach, who does parodies of the great composers; and Aaron Copland, one of the most quintessentially American composers of all. These pieces will also feature guest violinist Kozue Funakoshi and violist Wei-Ting Kuo.
Attendees are also invited to enjoy refreshments and mingle with our Artists at a post-concert reception.
