Today, the Minnesota Orchestra will play our music in concert, and you’re invited. We’ll be webcast on Minnesota Public Radio at 8 p.m. central time.
The standardization of orchestral and notational practice can, if a composer isn’t careful, hold back musical creativity.
A large part of this whole program is about relating to those who are presenting or hearing your music in a positive way, and learning how to benefit yourself through good communication.
The Minnesota Orchestra’s Composer Institute (Nov. 1-8) will be a fast-paced experience culminating in a public performance, and this year participants Ted Hearne and Justin Merritt have volunteered to tag-team the blogging duties and share their experiences with us.
