Before our last performance at Bedford Hall, our 2.0 participants had a chance to give their final presentations on their projects to the rest of the group!

Finally, we were ready for the final performance of our composer premieres!

After a long, rewarding two weeks, it was time to celebrate a little!

For the first of our final performances, we traveled to Evanston, IL just north of Chicago to Nichols Concert Hall!

After a morning of lessons and rehearsal, we had Paul Wang join us for his annual marketing presentation!

Entertaining as always, Paul’s presentation was an exciting way to wrap up our lineup of guest experts!

We even got a post-workshop visit from The King himself, 2016 composition alum Ralph Lewis!

After lunch, we got to work running through the final concerts, from blocking to transitions to composer introductions.
