Sean Curtice and Other Composers of 18th Century Music

From Sean Curtice ’12:

I have written a new Piano Concerto that soon will be premiered with the Wesleyan Orchestra and a special guest soloist.

It’s all very exciting, but I am still desperately seeking violinists, violists, a bassoonist, and a French horn player to perform in the concert. The remaining rehearsals will be in Crowell at 9pm on April 9, April 11, and at 4:30pm on April 12 before the concert itself. And there will be champagne and pizza from Mondo! Contact me at scurtice[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if interested.

Date: April 12th
