Chamber Project Saint Louis Twelfth Session
Saturday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
560 Music Center, University City, MO

Chamber Project Saint Louis has announced commissions from three composers for there twelfth season. Chamber Project have embraced the communicative and collaborative nature of chamber music to create interactive performances reflecting a 21st-century audience and builds partnerships with both traditional and non-traditional venues, all types of artists, institutions, and the community.

"This is work they commissioned me to write for the opening of their twelfth season. The piece is written for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano and will close out the evening's program. This work is a meditation of sorts on the nature of glass. Several musical ideas melt into each other, with some of them exploring the reflective, transparent, and warped qualities one finds in vitreous objects." says Werfelmann. 

"Our faculty composers are models for the students they teach," notes Jeffrey Carter, chair of the music department in the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts. "They are active and engaged, celebrating public performances and commissions. Their creativity is a model for us all."

Tickets for the concert are available at the venue. More information about the commissioning project is available at the Chamber Project Saint Louis website.
