Stephen Burns, artistic director, is pleased to invite you to the next of Fulcrum Point’s Discoveries sessions, a reading series for young and emerging American composers. We hope that you can join us.
After an exciting summer of new works for trumpet, strings, woodwinds, and percussion, we look forward to an evening of new music for brass quintet, featuring innovative and eccentric compositional techniques for the instrumentation in Shards by Timothy Corpus, Via Cor: Fanfare and Ode by Stephanie Boyd, and Elegy by Liza White. This month’s Discoveries session will take place on Monday, December 10th at 6pm in Gottlieb Hall at the Merit School of Music (38 South Peoria St., Chicago), and will be performed by the Fulcrum Point Brass Quintet, with members Stephen Burns, Kevin Hartman, Gregory Flint, Peter Ellefson, and Rex Martin. A reception will follow at 7pm.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, December 10th, 2012 if you wish to join us for this event. We hope that you will come listen to this new and exciting music for brass by young American composers and engage in conversation with them over a glass of wine immediately after the reading.
What is the Fulcrum Point Discoveries series?
Fulcrum Point Discoveries is a monthly series that presents new music by young and emerging American composers in a free public setting. This series gives underserved American composers the opportunity to hear their music interpreted by Chicago’s best musicians and to explore their work in dialogue with a community of performers, listeners, and other composers. The Fulcrum Point Discoveries series serves both composer and community by educating audiences and offering exposure to American composers while also giving them a unique venue for musical revelation, feedback, and development.
Thank you, and all the best–
Fulcrum Point New Music Project
