Minnesota-based composer Doug Harbin, along with flutist Deb Harris, will perform Doug’s Duo Sonata for Flute and Piano (2010). Afterward, they will present an informal session about composing, from the composer’s and the performer’s perspective, including these topics: the collaborative process between composer and performer, sources for grants, and general ideas about composing. Doug and Deb recently returned from Stony Brook University as featured performers at the first Flute New Music Consortium Festival. They will provide an overview of the festival, and information about becoming involved in the FNMC. Audience participation with Q and A during the livestream will be facilitated through the comments.
