Carter Pann Residency at IUP

I write to share with you an exciting residency with Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer Carter Pann at IUP on March 2-3. The residency will culminate with two concerts. The first at 4pm on Saturday will feature Therese Wacker, Professor of Flute at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and other members of the IUP music faculty in a recital of music by Carter Pann including Quintet for a Day: Six Snapshots of Day-to-day Life for Wind Quintet., "An Irish Tune" and "She Steals Me" from The Piano's 12 Sides for piano, and Dr. Wacker will present a premiere performance of Carter Pann's new work for flute and piano, Giantess, with Sun Min Kim, piano. The same evening at 7:30, the IUP Wind Ensemble and Symphony Band will present a concert including a preview performance of the concert the wind ensemble will play at the CBDNA convention at Yale. Repertoire includes Carter Pann's Richard and Renee for wind ensemble and piano as well as works by Martin Ellerby, Charles Ives, Robert Litton, and Vincent Persichetti.

The weekend will also include the finals of the Flute New Music Consortium's Flute Artist Competition. Four accomplished flutists from around the country will compete in the finals. Each will perform the newly commissioned work for flute and pre-recorded sound by Toronto-based composer Bekah Simms. Simms was recently named by CBC as one of Canada's hot 30 classical musicians under 30 and the winner of the 2017 Toronto Emerging Composer Award. Her works have been presented at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra's New Creations Festival, the Royal Conservatory of Music's 21C Festival, and New Adventures in Sound Art's Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art, among others.

The link to the residency schedule is below. I know most of you will not be able to attend the Friday events but I hope you will attend the Saturday events, it is not often that we have the opportunity to hear a premiere of a new work by such a significant composer in this region, particularly with the composer in attendance:

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
