The Lexington Philharmonic recently announced the selection of my orchestral work “Jest”, for their 2015 New Music Experiment in conjunction with the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra.
The New Music Experiment is part of the Lexington (KY) Philharmonic’s Composer-in-Residence program, in conjunction with the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestras. The program is designed to “foster the creative and innovative spirit by offering composers and musicians at many levels the opportunity to bring new art to life.”
My score “Jest” will be performed by members of the LexPhil and the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra, and I will have the opportunity to be at the rehearsals and performance, and work one-on-one with the Lexington Philharmonic’s Music Director and Conductor Scott Terrell.
The Central Kentucky Youth Orchestras (CKYO) is one of the oldest, independently chartered youth orchestras in the United States, with a tradition dating back to 1947. Over 300 students gather from 11 counties and 48 area schools to participate in CKYO.
