A VERY SPECIAL POINT DURING OUR FESTIVAL WEEKEND IS PERFORMING THE COMBINED FESTIVAL PIECE. DURING THIS TIME, ALL STUDENTS GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY TOGETHER. WE WERE VERY EXCITED TO RECEIVE TWO GRANTS THIS YEAR TO COMMISSION A BRAND NEW WORK OF MUSIC BY A FEMALE COMPOSER. MEIRA WARSHAUER GENEROUSLY AGREED TO BE OUR COMPOSER-IN-RESIDENCE FOR THE 2018 FESTIVAL. DR. WARSHAUER WILL BE ATTENDING THE FESTIVAL THIS YEAR, AND STUDENTS WILL GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A LIVING COMPOSER ON HER MUSIC.

MEIRA WARSHAUER IS A NATIONALLY KNOWN COMPOSER, AND HER MUSIC HAS BEEN PERFORMED BY MANY ORCHESTRAS. HER MUSIC HAS BEEN FEATURED ON MULTIPLE ALBUMS. MEIRA'S MUSICAL PALETTE IS WIDE, RANGING FROM TRADITIONAL JEWISH PRAYER MODES TO MINIMALIST TEXTURES WITH RICH MELODIC CONTOURS, AND FROM JOYFUL JAZZ-INFLUENCED RHYTHMS TO IMAGINATIVE ORCHESTRATIONS OF THE NATURAL WORLD. AT ITS CORE, IT EXPRESSES HER PERSONAL SPIRITUAL JOURNEY. 

ENJOY THIS SAMPLE OF HER WORK, IN MEMORIAM.
