I am excited to announce the inaugural concert of the newly formed Charlotte Composers Forum. Thanks to the vision and leadership of conductor Alan Yamamoto we will be presenting our first concert on October 20, 2013 at Barnes Recital Hall on the campus of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC USA, followed by a repeat performance at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, NC USA on October 27, 2013. Both concerts will feature works by Charlotte area composers Craig Bove and John Allemeier, and my composition for soprano and chamber ensemble Simple Things, in addition to songs by Gustav Mahler as arranged by Alan Yamamoto.
The concerts will also mark the first time that two of the most prominent chamber and new music ensembles in Charlotte will join forces. The Out of Bounds Ensemble and the Bechtler Ensemble will merge membership for the first time at the Charlotte Composers Forum concerts.
If you are in the Charlotte or Rock Hill, SC region please consider attending. This promises to be a wonderful showcase of music by Charlotte area composers played by the best performers in the Charlotte metro area.
