1st – Kirsten Volness: Two operas
Kirsten will discuss two very different approaches to creating operas that tell underheard stories in her work with The American Opera Project and Tenderloin Opera Company.

2nd – Mark Vigil: Woodwind Quintet
I would like to present to the Cascadia community my latest woodwind quintet. It’s about 12 minutes long and consists of standard wind quintet instrumentation. I would also like to present some of my Balinese and Javanese gamelan music. Many years ago, I was really excited about composing music which combined Western instruments with instruments found in gamelan orchestra. My Western instruments of choice were the flute and chorus. Music for Gamelan and wind quintet are interesting company.
