Toledo Symphony Orchestra reads BGSU student composer pieces: 11/19

Next Wednesday (11/19) from 3:30-6:00pm the Toledo Symphony will read, rehearse and record BGSU student compositions in Kobacker Hall.

The orchestra will be conducted by Michael Lewanski with guest composer Steven Stucky on hand to work with our composition students.The program is as follows–

Chris Lortie                 And death i think is no parenthesis
Lydia Dempsey           Passage
Alan Racadag             Prelude and Partial Postlude
Brian Sears                  Fractured Spirits
Kyle Laporte               Fire Breather

The event is open to students, faculty and staff of the College of Musical Arts and invited guests.  If you are aware of members of the public who would like to attend, please have them email faculty liaison Christopher Dietz ( to be included on the guest list.This is a very unique opportunity for BGSU composers.  While there are some very competitive national and international competitions for readings with professional orchestras, few academic institutions can offer this kind of professional experience to their students, exclusively.

If available for some or all of the reading session, please consider attending.

Thank you,
Christopher Dietz
