Myrtle Hart Society: Chicago premiere of “Meditation for Darfur” was “fantastic!”

On Dec. 2, 2007 we published a post on the New York Premiere of Fred Onovwerosuoke's “Meditation for Darfur”, Jan. 26, 2008. The Myrtle Hart Society's Monthly eNewsletter was published today by Rashida Naomi Black, Founder/Executive Director, and includes this review by her:

Ensemble du Monde, Lori-Kaye Miller and FredO

I've never met anyone as excited about performing and eager to make beautiful music as pianist Marlon Daniel, conductor of Ensemble du Monde. This month, he will perform Dance Revolutions, a concert of ballet music for chamber orchestra featuring mezzo-soprano Lori-Kaye Miller and the NY premiere of composer Fred ("FredO") Onovwerosuoke's Meditation for Darfur (2006). I saw the Chicago premiere performed by Sinfonietta and it was fantastic! Also on the program Copland's Appalachian Spring and Manuel de Falla's El Amor Brujo (1915).
