New music for old instruments

Rare Music in the Rare Book Room: Featuring the New Music for Old Instruments Composition Competition Winners
Friday, 23 April, 4pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
The last Rare Music program of the 2009-10 season will showcase the works of Martin Connor and David Song. Connor's Scherzo for Crumhorns and Song's Variations on a Suona Folk Tune for recorders will be performed, and the composers will be on hand to talk about their works. Connor and Song are students of Professor Anthony Kelley.  Both both showed creativity and unique approaches to writing new works for old instruments. This event is FREE and open to the public.

This is DUMIC's first New Music for Old Instruments composition competition. Duke students and all other members of the Duke community, including alumni, were invited to submit original compositions in any style, written for one of the following ensembles of early instruments: SATB crumhorns, SATB rebecs, or SATB recorders.  DUMIC has a variety of crumhorns, rebecs and recorders in its holdings.

Rare Music is co-sponsored by the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections (DUMIC) and the Duke University Libraries with additional support from the Vice Provost for the Arts, the Carrabina Endowment, Friends of DUMIC, High Strung Violins & Guitars, and VoChor Incorporated.
