DIGITAL World PREMIERES PROJECT
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, Maryland Chamber Winds were faced with the cancellation of their scheduled spring performances and the 2020 Maryland Wind Festival. In the face of a time when little art was being newly created, MCW reached out to a community of composers to create six new chamber music works for winds. The resulting Maryland Chamber Winds Digital Premieres Project has allowed us to be together and participate in the creative process of bringing pieces to life through virtual collaboration. We hope this effort has given hope and purpose to the lives of the participating composers and to our incredible performers!
