The Composition Department presents its annual playoff concert of the finalist graduation marches for the Spring 2012 Commencement ceremony. After the marches have all been played, the audience and players alike cast votes to determine a winner.
British pianist and composer Dave Mackay is joined by his group to present a collection of original pieces, blending a wide range of styles into his signature sound.
In the second half of the show, guitarist Anastasiya Dumma explores the spiritual aspect of music. Her group will perform a powerful mix of jazz, classical Russian folk, and free improvisation. No matter what the style is, all music is a prayer for the beauty of the world.
