Composer Readings

Composer Readings

We get a backstage glimpse at what it takes to make a piece of symphonic music in this episode. Every year, the Toledo Symphony does a series of readings of new works by young composers from Bowling Green State University, and two of them join us today: Corey Brodack and Connor Gibbs. We're also joined by the composer Christopher Dietz, who is also on faculty at BGSU and runs the readings program. Rounding out the panel are the TSO's Merwin Siu and Alain Trudel, who conducts the TSO in the readings. And as an added bonus, see if you can identify the Mad Composers in our quiz of the day!
