The University of Nevada CME offered the World Premieres of ‘Yellow Grass’ and two pieces from ‘Ocho Duos’ on their March 15 program entitled ‘Ars Breva.’ Aren Long and Jinkyung Moon performed a satisfying preview of the two duos for the L-CUBED noon-time series earlier that same day.
Adam Snider performed Mishi Peshu: Vision at Big Water for the L-CUBE noon-time series at the University of Nevada, Reno. The solo tuba piece sounded particularly well in the resonant space of the Frank & Joan Randall Rotunda of the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center.
