TURNmusic concerts to feature piece by MFA in Music Composition student Stephanie Meyers

TURNmusic's June concerts will include a performance of Paracusis, a piece written by current MFA in Music Composition student Stephanie Meyers.

Meyers won the local Vermont music organization's annual Collegiate Composition Prize for 2016 and, as part of the award, gets to have her music played live by local musicians.

Paracusis is Meyers’s first string quartet, and the first comprehensive chamber piece she has written. Meyers composed her piece during her second semester of VCFA under faculty member Jonathan Bailey Holland's mentorship. Stephanie said: “Paracusis, another word for an auditory hallucination, is first in a series of chamber works following my own impressions of the musical juxtaposition between imagery and hallucination."

Paracusis will be included in two TURNmusic concerts coming up in mid-June. Other performances will include music by Phillip Glass and a tribute to David Bowie. TURNmusic performances are defined by quality-not by genre-and presents professional music concerts in relaxed venues while maintaining affordable ticket prices.

VCFA is a proud supporter of both TURNmusic concerts.
