KMFA CLASSICAL 89.5 & INVERSION ENSEMBLE PRESENT
THE ELECTRIC CHOIR
FEATURING THE WORLD PREMIERE OF A NEW WORK BY KMFA COMPOSER-IN-RESIDENCE QUINN MASON
Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m. | Draylen Mason Music Studio
KMFA Classical 89.5 will wrap up the first year of its Composer-In-Residence program in October with the final two world premiere pieces commissioned by rising composer Quinn Mason. The first premiere will take place earlier in the month with the UT Butler School Wind Ensemble. Details on that concert can be found here.
The final commissioned piece by KMFA’s inaugural Composer-In-Residence, Quinn Mason, will have its world premiere as part of Inversion Ensemble’s The Electric Choir concert on Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m. in the Draylen Mason Music Studio at KMFA. Mason’s composition entitled Peace with text by Pulitzer Prize Winning American Poet Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) will be featured in the program. This genre-bending concert will alternate between new a cappella works and choral works accompanied by electronic tracks and electric instruments – including Mason’s premiere. In-house composers Marjorie Halloran, Adrienne Inglis, Robbie LaBanca, Trevor Show, and Trevor Villwock will also have works premiered on the program.
