Hurley Chamber Orchestra Concert April 9 
To Feature Works by Living Composers

SHREVEPORT, LA -- On Monday, April 9 at 8 p.m. in Hurley Recital Hall, the Hurley Chamber Orchestra will perform an unusual concert.  It is unusual because most of the works on the concert are by living composers.

"Yes... they are rumored to exist," says music instructor Eric L. McIntyre. "These days it's not often you get to hear an orchestra concert made up primarily of works written during your lifetime."

The concert will include two world premieres by Centenary composers, McIntyre and Kyle Greer.  

The orchestra will also present Gavin Bryars' multimedia work, The Sinking of the Titanic for digital tape and orchestra. Featured performers include oboe soloist Theresa Zale Bridges and conductor John Cowden.

This Easter week concert will conclude, appropriately, with Haydn's "La Passione" Symphony No. 49. Admission is free.
