Fredonia College Symphony: Zoomworks Premiere

The Fredonia College Symphony Orchestra will stream its Spring 2021 concert at 8pm on Tuesday, May 4.

The concert will feature nine new works composed for the College Symphony by three Fredonia faculty members—Rob Deemer, Jamie Leigh Sampson, and Andrew Martin Smith—and six alumni—Ethan Fields, Alan Hankers, Michael Lanci, Matthew Pellegrino, Rachael Smith, and Emily Joy Sullivan.

These works, commissioned by Director of Orchestras David Rudge, were written originally so that they could be recorded with each instrumentalist being remote but, as most students were able to rehearse and record in the same room in the spring semester, the works were recorded live for this concert.

All six alumni have gone on to pursue graduate studies after they graduated from Fredonia—Ethan Fields at Syracuse University, Alan Hankers at Stony Brook University, Michael Lanci at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Matthew Pellegrino (a recent recipient of a Fulbright Award) at Peabody Conservatory, Rachael Smith at the University of Louisville and Peabody Conservatory, and Emily Joy Sullivan at the University of California at Davis.
