Upcoming New Music @ Lawrence Event


Lawrence Wind Ensemble with Guest Composer Joel Puckett

Saturday, May 23, 2015, 8 PM
Lawrence Memorial Chapel

Named as one of National Public Radio’s listeners' favorite composers under the age of 40, Joel Puckett is a composer who is dedicated to the belief that music can bring consolation, hope and joy to all who need it. The Lawrence Wind Ensemble will perform Puckett’s Shadow of Sirius that  will feature Erin Lesser, Assistant Professor of Music and our Lawrence Flute Ensemble. The Shadow of Sirius, has been performed all over the world and commercially recorded multiple times. Of the recent recording released on the Equilibrium label, Audiophile Audition wrote, “The music ... contains a density within a clarity, polyphony within the simple and – most importantly – is a beautiful and seemingly spiritual work.”
