Episode 5 (May 5, 2021): Part 1
Today, Juliet Palmer and I talk about her most collaborative composition projects with community arts organizations, children’s choirs, youth orchestras, high school students and professional musicians alike.
Somehow we got onto swapping stories about musical page turning in high-pressure situations and that was the best place to leave off. Are there really page turning competitions somewhere in the world? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter because I am *certain* that they must exist, but can’t find them.
Fresh Sounds / Open Ears is an interview podcast about composition and music education, hosted by composer Alex Eddington. Every episode, I have a conversation with a different Canadian composer – with a focus on their writing for/with young and amateur musicians.
