Students of Concordia Conservatory performed Echo Song

Students of Concordia Conservatory's Chamber Music Program premiered ECHO SONG, commissioned for them for their performance on 12 May 2012 at Concordia College's Sommer Center. Having an inclusive chamber music program open to all instruments and abilities inevitably results a few unusual ensembles, and finding repertoire is a amusing challenge! Sometimes an arrangement of an existing piece does the trick, and in fact some short baroque pieces lend themselves quite cheerfully to flexible instrumentation. But by utilizing the composers at the Conservatory, we can combine students of roughly similar ability in sometimes oddball instrumentations. ECHO SONG, for example, is for three guitarists and piano four-hands!
