The MAGIC of Peter Marsh

Composition Program

We offered a “composition program” designed to allow composers to bring semi-completed works and get feedback from Professor Wallin Huff and the players as these were being polished and recorded. Our two participants were Ross Casey (viola) and Nikaela Goodman (cello). Both had strong backgrounds in string playing as former participants in previous CMIsc summer programs. By working with Sarah Wallin Huff, they completed their ideas and received performances and recordings.
