In a week or two, our 2015 CANOE Composers will finalize their first compositions, and we'll be on our way to printing these works for rehearsals and performances. The new works will be performed in the fall, and the Bowler, Gresham and Stockbridge-Munsee composers will travel to Green Bay to hear their works rehearsed and premiered. Starting with a small germ of an idea, the composers have written out larger developments of that beginning seed, and the works have blossomed into nearly completed compositions for two violins, viola and cello, namely string quartet. After the summer, the Civic Symphony of Green Bay will premiere the works pressing into service the full compliment of strings in the orchestra, for a rich, comprehensive sound. If you know these students, in your school or here on the rez, encourage them as the final push to completion is at hand! Special thanks go to Seong-Kyung Graham, conductor of the Civic Symphony of Green Bay, and to the band directors at Bowler and Gresham High Schools respectively, Alan Marquardt and Amy Doefer. Thank you Seong, Alan and Amy!
