USC Graduate Composition Recital / 4 Poems Set to Music

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:37 am

This is last minute, but if there’s anyone in the area who’s interested in hearing some fantastic new music from the graduate composers at USC, the Thornton Composition Department Recital is this Sunday (Nov 16).

I have a vested interest — as some of you may know, I’ve been working with Juhi Bansal, a graduate composer in the department over the past few months on a project.  She has been putting together a suite based on four poems from The Lost Country of Sight — the music is gorgeous and I’m excited to hear the final version.  To learn more about Juhi’s other projects and compositions, visit her website

You can listen to an earlier version of “Halfway” (part of the suite) here.
