DRUID CITY ENSEMBLE GIVES FREE CONCERTS OF NEW WORKS FOR SOPRANO, FLUTE, HARP
Part of Birmingham Art Music Alliance Twentieth Anniversary Celebration
On the first weekend in November, Druid City Ensemble – Dr. Sarah K. Crocker, harp; Dr. Whitney O’Neal, flute; and Dr. Dawn Neely, soprano – will give two free concerts of music written by Birmingham-area composers.
The Birmingham Art Music Alliance (BAMA) presents the second concert on Sunday, November 8, 2015 at 2:30 p.m., at the University of Montevallo’s LeBaron Recital Hall.
This event is a part of BAMA’s Twentieth Anniversary Celebration, marking twenty years of presenting music by Alabama composers. At the same time, the lineup of soprano, flute, and harp defines new territory for many of the composers involved.
