This year’s festival features the music of award-winning composers Ingrid Stölzel and Dale Trumbore. Stölzel has been described as having a “gift for melody,” (San Francisco Classical Voice) creating work that is “downright beautiful.” (American Record Guide) Her compositions have been commissioned by leading soloists and ensembles and performed worldwide. Stölzel, who teaches composition at the University of Kansas School of Music, will premiere a new string trio commissioned by the festival. Trumbore is a prominent Los Angeles-based choral composer and writer whose music has been called “devastatingly beautiful” (The Washington Post) with “soaring melodies and beguiling harmonies.” (The New York Times) Her compositions have been performed by ensembles in the U.S. and internationally. JMU faculty, ensembles and students will present the music of Stölzel and Trumbore as well as other contemporary works in three main concerts during the festival.
