Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/14/2013 -- In cooperation with Drake University (which is providing one third of the funding for this endeavor), Michael Wheatley and team are counting on this Kickstarter project to produce an exhibition of works by living American composers in St. Petersburg, Russia. All but one work on the program (Short Ride in a Fast Machine) will be a Russian premiere - the first time these American works have ever been performed for Russian audiences.
The following concert will take place with the Capella Orchestra in Capella Hall:
Michael Torke: December
Ned Rorem: Cello Concerto w/ cellist Dr. Ashley Sidon, Drake Univ.
John Adams: Three Fanfares (Lollapalooza, Tromba Lontana, & Short Ride in a Fast Machine)
Jennifer Higdon: Blue Cathedral
Christopher Rouse: Rapture
The LARC Exhibition’s concert has been directly endorsed by all five of these acclaimed composers, and they are even contributing to the fundraising efforts.
This project will only be funded if at least $12,500 is pledged by Sunday May 26, 9:01pm EDT.
