USC Thornton Composition professor Frank Ticheli’s music will be performed not once, but twice, this month at Carnegie Hall in New York City. On Feb. 11, the New York Choral Society and Orchestra will present the East Coast premiere of Ticheli’s piece, The Shore (Symphony No. 3), featuring text by USC faculty member David St. John.
The following day, Ticheli will act as festival leader for the daylong Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Wind Ensemble Invitational for high school ensembles. The event culminates in a concert that evening at which he will guest conduct his piece, Blue Shades, with the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory Wind Ensemble.
