Lynn Beck, lecturer in music and hornist, performed Saturday, May 25, on a program entitled “Old and New Music for Horn and Percussion featuring Women Composers” at the 10th annual International Women’s Brass Conference at Arizona State University in Tempe.
The lecture-recital highlighted several new works submitted in response to a 2018 call for scores and featured the premiere performance of the competition winner, Madeline A. Lee’s “Atrevida.”
Beck performed pieces written for two horns and percussion with horn professor Maria Serkin and percussion professor John Beck of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Included on the program was Lynn Glassock’s “Shared Spaces;” a composition the Beck’s co-commissioned with five other horn and percussion couples in 2000.
The mission of the International Women’s Brass Conference is to “educate, develop, support, and promote women brass musicians while inspiring continued excellence and opportunities in the broader musical world,” and membership is open to people of all genders.
