David Smooke

We’re thrilled to announce that composer David Smooke is the recipient of our 2017 Composer Alive commission!

In keeping with our Composer Alive format, David will write a new piece in three installments for our musicians to perform and record and then we’ll perform the World Premiere of the new piece in May at the Davis Theater for a concert that David will attend.

Each of the installment recordings will take place in front of a live audience with video posted to our website shortly afterward along with comments from the composer regarding his process.
