Stravinsky Project Aired on All Classical Radio

Two of the works from last year's Stravinsky Project concert were broadcast on All Classical Radio's Played in Oregon program on February 16, 2014.

In March 2013, the music department at Marylhurst University sponsored The Stravinsky Project, in which some of the region's finest musicians tackled the Russian composer's A Soldier's Tale.

Also on the program were pieces inspired by Stravinsky's work, including selections from jazz artist Wynton Marsalis' A Fiddler's Tale, department chair John Paul's A Composer's Tale, and works by three Marylhurst composer majors.

The musicians: Igor Shakhman, clarinet (principal Vancouver Symphony & Marylhurst faculty); Evan Kuhlmann, bassoon (Oregon Symphony); Jeffrey Work, trumpet (principal, Oregon Symphony); Aaron LaVere, trombone (principal, Oregon Symphony); Brian Gardiner, percussion (Vancouver Symphony, Portland Opera Orchestra, Marylhurst faculty); Ron Blessinger, violin (Oregon Symphony and artistic director Third Angle New Music Ensemble); and Jason Schooler, bass (Oregon Symphony). Ken Selden, director of orchestra studies at Portland State University, conducted.
