Cascadia Streams presents:
The 10th annual In Good Hands Concert featuring student performers playing Cascadia Composers works!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 11th, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. (PDT) for one of Cascadia Composers’ favorite yearly traditions, the In Good Hands recital. Talented student performers from both the Portland and Eugene metro areas will play new music written by Cascadia Composers members. To watch the livestream, link in via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81467376063.
After the event, videos of the performances can be watched here on our website (on this page).
In Good Hands 2020 will feature piano works by David Bernstein, Daniel Brugh, Ally Rose Czyzewicz, Dianne Davies, John De Runtz, Adam Eason, Jan Mittelstaedt, Lisa Neher, Timothy Arliss O’Brien, Paul Safar, and Nicholas Yandell. (see below for information on them).
In this rewarding collaborative project, local music teachers work with their students on these pieces (some of which are premieres). In addition, the student gets to meet with the composer of the work ahead of time, gaining feedback and insight. This connection between young students and living composers is vital to moving contemporary music into the future.
Special thanks to our participating music teachers this year: Irene Huang, Sandy Hull, Betsy Parker, Cindy Peterson Peart, Paul Safar and Fen-Fang Tsao.
