Composer Showcase

The Composer Showcase was an inspiring evening of music for ARMTA members and friends on November 22, 2015. It featured eight local composers and 17 musicians. The performances included several instruments such as piano, voice, bassoon, saxophone, violin and cello. ¬†Special thanks to St. John’s Music for hosting this event!

Composers shared a wide range of music – teaching repertoire, advanced recital repertoire, two world premiers, traditional and contemporary sounds. Each performance included at least one ARMTA member as a composer, performer or teacher. Many guests purchased repertoire and recordings, and everyone enjoyed a wine and cheese social time.

Many thanks to St. John’s Music, Steinway Piano Gallery, Beth Olver, and her dedicated volunteers. With such a positive response, we plan to host this event again soon!
