Sidereus Performances Continue
Throughout the winter and spring of 2011, performances of Sidereus will continue throughout the country. The work was composed at the request of the Henry Fogel Commissioning Consortium, a group of 35 American orchestras seeking to honor the former League of American Orchestras President and long-time administrator and champion of classical music. Sidereus received its world premiere with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra on October 16, under the baton of Mei-Ann Chen, and continues on its journey of performances by all 35 commissioning orchestras. Upcoming performances include the Florida Orchestra in February; the Stockton Symphony and Reno Chamber Orchestra in March; and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and Kansas City Symphony in April.
