David Velasco, 2017 Composition Marathon

  • Sol Joseph Recital Hall 50 Oak Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Thalea String quartet will premiere seven pieces that were written for them by SFCM composition students and alumni.

Program and The Thalea String Quartet present “The 2017 Composition Marathon”. A unique and exciting competition that involves local composers and pieces written for string quartet under 48 hours. Composers are given a concept at the countdown and they'll have to submit scores and parts at the end of the 48 hours. This is a particularly remarkable experience for both participating composers, performers and the audience.
