— We presented our Second Annual Gratitude Concert on Saturday, November 12, 2011. What a wonderful time we all had! Incredible new music, superb composers, the best performers in the area, scrumptious food, and a gathering afterward that lasted well into the night.
Of the 14 pieces on the program, 8 were premieres, 3 had premiered two weeks before, as NCMTA winners, and 3 were premiered at previous concerts and were back by popular demand!
Our composers included Noah Balamucki, Sabrina Thompson, Beatrice Crist, aBe Lange, Susie Kim Park, Stephanie Wang, Grace Gollmar, Charles Higgins, Alex van Gils, michael jon bennett, Samantha Strowd, and Gabriel Crist.
Our concerts, and the community banquets which follow each one, are wonderful opportunities for the young composers to get to know each other. Lifelong friendships are forged in these very special evenings!
