ANNOUNCING THE 2018 COMPOSER-IN-RESIDENCE: MAX STOFFREGEN
This summer composer Max Stoffregen will join the festival as the 2018 Composer-in-Residence.
“Presenting new music and supporting living composers has always been one of our priorities,” says festival director Ian Scarfe, “This residency program allows us to bring the composer to the festival to enjoy the full experience that we offer.”
In past seasons, the festival has commissioned new musical works, including Stephen Kahn's “Redbud Peeks” in 2012, Danny Clay's “Just So Stories” in 2014 and “Ocean Park” in 2016, and Noah Luna's “Landscape Variations” in 2016, which was supported by Michael Cohen of Redding.
This year, Stoffregen will enjoy a more immersive role, joining the other musicians for their retreat week in Hyampom, working with the different instrumentalists in rehearsals, participating in the concerts, and enjoying a backpacking trip in the Trinity Alps.
He will contribute two compositions to the festival - one this year, which will be performed on the August 24-26 “Summer Serenades” programs, and another in 2019 which will be informed and enriched by the immersion of the residency, and time spent in the Trinity Alps backcountry.
Stoffregen has spent lots of time in scenic wilderness areas such as the Trinity Alps, describing his connection to nature as “a passion and priority...the natural world is a potent inspiration, and many of my compositions are inspired by the landscapes I have immersed myself in.”
Join us for our concerts August 24, 25, and 26 to welcome Max to Trinity County!
