The current semester’s reading session for UNO students is focused on Brass instruments. Many of the students are working on Brass quintets at the moment and are looking forward to having them read through.
The reading will be held on the NOCCA campus on April 22nd from 2:00-3:30.
There are not many composition students at the University of New Orleans but they are hardworking nonetheless. Last semester, we brought in a string quartet to read some of the students work and this year we will be continuing that tradition by bringing in a woodwind trio.
I truly feel that one of the best things for a young composer is to have their music read and be able to interact with the performers to actually find out exactly what works and what doesn’t, but not only that, to be able to see why. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students.
The reading will be held in the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on November 17th from 11:00 to 12:30.
