GBQ will present a program in which five composers works will be presented with the composers in the audience. A panel discussion will take place with the composers at 7:00 PM, moderated by Kathryn Bacasmot before the concert. This will be a fascinating opportunity to learn more about how a piece of music is created and the process of bringing it to life for the first time. If you are free, please come and support live music and living composers.
