The Cleveland Orchestra And Frost School Of Music Announce Expanded Annual Residency At University Of Miami January 29-February 1

Bookmark and Share
The Cleveland Orchestra returns to the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music on January 29-February 1 on the University of Miami's Coral Gables campus for an expanded annual residency, with a scope of activities that will provide students with invaluable access and exposure to one of the country's major orchestras over four days.

The centerpiece of the residency on Thursday, January 31, is "Echoes of Fantastique"; a combined orchestra of Cleveland Orchestra musicians and fifty students selected especially by the faculty of the Frost School of Music's Department of Instrumental Performance will rehearse and give a public reading of five new works by Frost composition students. Their compositions are based on, or inspired by, Berlioz's "Symphonie fantastique." UM Frost Research Professor Frank Cooper will preview the event with a 15-minute multimedia presentation about the revolutionary work, a piece that changed the direction of orchestral music forever, inspiring a whole new genre of tone poems and programmatic composition. "Symphonie fantastique" was chosen because it will be performed by The Cleveland Orchestra in Miami on February 1 and 2 at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Dr. Cooper will explore the curiosity of the storyline of "Symphonie fantastique", the novelties of its form, the originality of its orchestration, and the demands it makes on performers.

More than thirty undergraduate and graduate composers from the Frost School were invited to compose and submit new works last year for a composition competition organized by the Frost School's Department of Music Theory and Composition.
The five finalists will hear their works rehearsed by the joint orchestral ensemble and receive coaching from Cleveland Orchestra Assistant Conductor James Feddeck and Frost composition faculty. The contest-winning compositions are Daniel Choi's "Scaena Ager," Peter Learn's "Mosaique," David Mendoza's "Awakening," Matthew Taylor's "Three Glorious Days" and Richard Yates's "Imagined Music."

Free, and open to the public, the "Echoes of Fantastique" event takes place at 8 p.m. at UM Gusman Concert Hall, 1314 Miller Drive, Coral Gables, Florida. Tickets are required; see www.music.miami.edu/concerts for details.

During the Residency, musicians from The Cleveland Orchestra will lead master classes and chamber music coaching sessions for the Frost School of Music students. Fifty Frost students will attend Cleveland Orchestra performances on February 1 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

Cleveland Orchestra Miami is a 10-year project that began in 2007 with Cleveland Orchestra Music Director Franz Welser-Mst. The Cleveland Orchestra serves the Miami-Dade community through an annual series of subscription orchestra concerts from November through March at the Arsht Center, and also conducts annual residencies at the University of Miami Frost School of Music. Cleveland Orchestra musicians also participate in a broad spectrum of music education and outreach activities throughout South Florida.
