A New Symphony for Winds, Brass and Percussion
by Edward Green
A Consortium Opportunity
(deadline: July 1, 2011)
Mark Scatterday of the Eastman Wind Ensemble and Andrew Pease of the Columbia University Wind Ensemble are pleased to announce the opportunity to join a consortium for a new symphony for band by New York composer Edward Green.
Green, a professor at Manhattan School of Music, who teaches as well at the renowned Aesthetic Realism Foundation, is a Fulbright scholar and a Grammy-nominated composer. His output includes both a rich variety of concert music and film scores—including for the Emmy Award-winning director Ken Kimmelman. He has spent the last year working with Pease and the Columbia Wind Ensemble on the premieres of his Overture in E-flat.
Eastman and Columbia are now the first members of the consortium that will commission Green to create three additional movements of new material for a symphony which will open with the Overture in E-flat.

A $500 buy-in fee gives each consortium member a full score and set of parts of the complete work and exclusive, unlimited performance rights through the end of the 2012-13 school year. To express your interest or to get more information about this project, contact Andrew Pease at email@example.com
