Day 19 – Rehearsals and French Concert
Today we were back to a “normal” work day at IMFA, the last day we’ll have scheduled rehearsals and seminars. The composers met in the morning to share musical recordings that have helped shape their own creative voices, then had individual meetings with Stefano. We also had rehearsals of string trios by Grant and Rachel in the afternoon.
This evening, we gathered in the UWC auditorium for a concert of music by French composers. We were asked to produce this concert in order to coincide with a symposium of French language and culture that is also happening on campus this week. Both faculty and student groups performed; a short video is posted below. Tomorrow: our final concert at the Castello, and the famous “Mozart BBQ.”
