Orchestra and soloists

Last night was the first rehearsal of Brian Current's Airline Icarus with singers and orchestra. After reading up to 20 lines of staff on the orchestral score for the workshop, it was a pleasure to sit and play only the piano part. The Soundstreams performance this Sunday will also be recorded for broadcast on the CBC Radio 2 program Two New Hours. Here is the orchestra for Airline Icarus:

Leslie Newman, flute
Shalom Bard, clarinet
John Rudolph and Mark Duggan, percussion
Chris Foley, piano
Mark Skazinetsky, violin 1
Sergei Nikonov, violin 2
Virginia Barron, viola
David Hetherington, cello

Brian Current has been in New York this week for a performance last night of Symphonies in Slanted Time with the American Composers Orchestra.
