Participants prepped for some outreach programs in the morning and had a bit of rehearsal time before loading up on a bus to Chicago!
We got to St. James Cathedral for an ensemble panel featuring Peter McDowell of Eighth Blackbird and Russell Rolen of Spektral Quartet. Moderated by Dan and Stacy, participants got to ask questions from the perspective of both composers and fellow performers.
After the panel, Fifth House Ensemble presented a program of music by Dan Visconti and Stacy Garrop for Rush Hour Concerts. The performance was broadcast on WFMT and can be heard here!
