Picture of the Day – July 11, 2012

Here’s a peek at the 2011 Festival’s opening concert:

HICO performs in 2011

The Hartt Independent Chamber Orchestra led by Erberk Eryilmaz performed works by 2011 Composer-in-Residence Gilda Lyons, Eunsook Baek, Jessica Rudman, and the winner of our inaugural Composition Competition, Sang Mi Ahn.

The Composition Competition was a new addition to the Festival in 2011, and the high quality of the submissions received in both the first and second years encouraged us to continue offering this award annually.  Each year, the prize involves the performance of a selected work by our featured ensemble Рstay tuned to find out who it will be for 2013!
