This Saturday, March 4th, fellow composer and UNT alum Christopher Tucker will do his next-to-final Main Event program on WRR 101 Classical. His guest will be Eugene Corporon, renowned wind band conductor at the University of North Texas, and the program will feature various pieces from UNT’s most recent CDs “Poetics” and “Passions”, including my very own Stampede and Eric’s October. Chris has done a short 2 or 3-minute interview with Eric and with myself as part of the program. Tune in if you can – you can listen via the internet from WRR’s home page.
Tonight is the joint Rhode Island College Wind Ensemble and Brown University Wind Ensemble concert, featuring Dusk and “Alchemy in Silent Spaces.” We had the dress rehearsal last night amidst a snowstorm, which, while quite pretty, was a bit messy to be out in. Most everyone made it to rehearsal, though, and “Alchemy” is going to be great! I meet the Brown Univ. group at 6pm to work on Dusk a little bit, which I’m definitely looking forward to as well. I’ve had a lot of fun here in Providence (cute town!) the last two days including some delicious seafood (clam chowder beyond compare), and I’m looking forward to the concert tonight! Wish us luck!
