Meet the Composer at Creekside
Creekside Books & Coffee will host a special "Meet the Composer at Creekside" event at 7:30 p.m. Friday May 20 featuring 2011 Skaneateles Festival Musician and Award-Winning Composer Stacy Garrop.
Garrop centers her music on dramatic and direct narrative, and many of her works draw directly upon poets and writers for source material. Her works have been performed at orchestras throughout the country, including the Albany, Charleston, Detroit, Omaha and Illinois symphonies, as well as the National Repertory Orchestra, New England Philharmonic and an array of chamber ensembles: the Artaria String Quartet, Enso Quartet, Lincoln Trio, Orion Ensemble, Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Seattle New Music Ensemble and the Society for New Music.
She is currently an Associate Professor in Composition at the Chicago College of Performing Arts of Roosevelt University.
