Amaranth Quartet Premieres “Losing Constellations” at New Music On the Point

In June I spent two weeks at New Music on the Point hearing a number of wonderful student and faculty concerts, inspirational lessons from a caring, aesthetically-varied faculty, and inspiring fellow students. I am thankful to University of Illinois’s Theodore Presser Graduate Music Award for making my ability to afford going possible.

A highlight during those weeks that I will treasure was collaborating with Amaranth Quartet. While it was so exciting to eventually hear my new quartet “Losing Constellations,” the time NMOP gave Julie, Helen, Abi, Emily, and me time to process, discuss, and revise ideas along the way made such a difference in how we worked on music together. I feel very honored to be allowed into Amaranth’s world during our collaboration.
