Today begins the first day of the EarShot / Memphis Symphony New Music readings. Selected from a pool of hundreds of submissions, four emerging composers (Jean Ahn, Christian Baldini, Andreia Pinto-Correia, and Patricio DaSilva) have been selected to participate in an intensive two-day reading session with the Memphis Symphony and its music director David Loebel. Mentor composers Michael Gandolfi and Melinda Wagner will provide insight and guidance to the young composers. Check in here to get a behind-the-scenes view of what's on the participants minds as they live through the process of hearing their works realized.
