Music Grad student Kevork Andonian reports summer activities

July 12th, 2011 · 5 Comments

Kevork Andonian, Music graduate student in composition (whom we have blogged about several times) sent us the following email about his summer activities–glad you are keeping busy, Kevork!

“Kevork Andonian, UCLA PhD Candidate in Music Composition, had his composition for flute and marimba entitled A Longing For Joy performed at this year’s “Piccolo Spoleto Festival” in Charleston, South Carolina. The performers were flutist John Samuel Roper and percussionist Michael Haldeman and they are interested in commissioning a new work from Kevork in the near future.

On June 18th of this year the same piece was performed by flutist Marc Grauwels and percussionist Sarah Mouradoglou at the “Festival Evian” in France.

In August, 2011 Kevork will present a paper about composer Olivier Messiaen’s piece Quartet for the End of Time in Baden-Baden, Germany at the “Symposium on Art and Science” hosted by the “International Institute for Advanced Studies in Systems Research and Cybernetics”. At this conference Kevork will also give a lecture-recital related to his dissertation topic of music polystylism, eclecticism and transnationalism.”
