Salon preview: Jessi Harvey

I will be presenting Toad Song, a small irreverent piece for cello and alto voice, written in honor of a large toad. Feasting, sitting, croaking, and singing abound. Musical tribute is paid. Lyrics by Vanessa Emily.

Jessi Harvey is a composer and teacher living in Seattle. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2009 and from the University of New Mexico with a Master’s of Music Theory and Composition in 2012. She writes music that often features stutters, sound masses, appropriately placed dominant chords, random lyricism, and sometimes, none of the above. She finds inspiration in the everyday, both the small and silly and the large and difficult.

Salon Hiatus

Hello Friends of the Seattle Composers' Salon, I just wanted to put up this post for those who might visit this site... The Salon is taking a short hiatus, but will be back in 2019 with new events and some new ideas. We appreciate all of your support over the years, and we want to thank John Teske for his wonderful curation for the past few years. John is stepping down as curator, and we will be working on a new direction for the Salon in the coming months.
