In another attempt to “paint music” I have put together this submission for the program cover for the New Score Chamber Orchestra.
My friend’s father, a retired college professor and inveterate music lover, has been intrigued by my attempts. One of the assignments that he gave his students involved drawing a picture of a piece of classical music. We have had a couple of long discussions about this, especially when I explained that in my attempts I have tried to avoid using symbols. I have employed some musical notation in this piece, but only in the “construction” aspect, not in the “sounds” one sees.
If you were to make a picture of music, how would you portray it?
What piece of music would you choose to represent?
I was honored with a request to submit a design to be used as a program cover and publicity materials for the New Score Chamber Orchestra of Orlando, Florida. This pen and ink sketch, while quoting a well-used conducting cliché, adds some humor and meaning with hopes that the viewer enjoys getting LOST IN THE DETAILS.
New Score Chamber Orchestra’s motto is “linking music of living composers with today’s audience.” I was thrilled to participate as a guest artist during their inaugural performance last September. You can find out more about this group, including times and locations of performances, at their website.
My husband’s old friend and colleague Jamie Wehr honored me with an invitation to present a solo art show in conjunction with New Score Chamber Orchestra’s fall concert. I also painted the poster art to advertise the event. Jamie is the Music Director of the New Score Chamber Orchestra. His media consultant Rachel Ann Poling completed the graphic design work overlaid on the poster.
The venue is the “White House,” home of Benoit Glazer, Music Director of Cirque du Soleil in Orlando. Benoit Glazer’s Timucua Arts Foundation is a sponsor of the event.
