We are excited to announce that we have commissioned the following composers to write new works for us to premiere during the 2014-2016 seasons:
- Brooks Frederickson
- Olivia Kieffer
- Brendon Randall-Myers
- Ryan Ross Smith
- Alan Theisen
We will have profiles of these composers up on our website in the coming months.
With the addition of these five composers' works, we will soon have a total of 15 compositions written for our duo. The composers we commissioned earlier last year are: Drew Baker, Zack Browning, Andrea La Rose, Jenna Lyle, Ned McGowan, Carolyn O’Brien, Matthew Joseph Payne, Ivan Trevino, Francisco Castillo Trigueros and Ken Ueno.
Thanks to a grant we received from the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music's Musical Grant Program, we will be premiering some of these compositions in San Francisco in October 2014. Details TBA!
We are also honored to be awarded a residency at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire for two weeks in June. We will spend our time there rehearsing the new compositions for performances during the upcoming season.
Other cool projects are in the works. Sign up for our mailing list if you don't want to miss anything!
