Lonnie and Lonie, a Double Concerto for Trumpet and Piano presented by Chamber Orchestra of the Springs at First United Methodist Church, Colorado Springs CO

Join us for the world premiere of Lonnie and Lonie, a double concerto for trumpet and piano!

The 2019 Peak FreQuency Music Festival features composer and musicologist George E. Lewis with several events including a student-centered festival opening, a concert of the music of George Lewis, a campus-wide lecture in the UCCS Dean’s Scholar Series and the world premiere of a double concerto for trumpet and piano.

George E. Lewis is the Edwin H. Case Professor of American Music at Columbia University. He is a 2002 MacArthur “genius” Fellow, as well as a Guggenheim Fellow, a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Lewis’s work in electronic and computer music and multimedia installations, chamber and orchestral music, opera, and improvisative forms is documented on more than 150 recordings, presented by the world’s finest ensembles.

Lewis has also published extensively on music, interactive technologies and media, experimental art, and improvisation, including his award-winning book, A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Experimental Music (University of Chicago Press, 2008) and his co-edited two-volume Oxford Handbook of Critical Improvisation Studies (2016), which brought together scholars from the humanities, arts, and the social and natural sciences.

This residency is a grand collaboration sponsored by the UCCS Music Program, the Colorado College Music Department, The Heller Center for the Arts and Humanities, CU President’s Fund for the Humanities, the UCCS Office of Research and the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs.
