An audience member wrote, ” We thoroughly enjoyed all the performances. The composers were great and the musicians were fantastic.”
Opus 27 was held at Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michael’s College on Monday, January 6th. Fifty-one students posted works-in-progress to the online mentoring site during the fall for feedback from our composer mentors. Twenty-one works were selected as “best for live performance”. At Opus 27, each student had the opportunity to discuss their work with the musicians in rehearsal. Students were supported at the rehearsals by the professional composers and/or their teacher.
Professional Performers for Opus 27:
Chris Rivers and Jason Whitcomb, trumpet
Joy Worland, French horn
Lori Salimando Porter, trombone Bill Keck, tuba
