Sara Kirkland Snider ~ Composer of Music

Composer Residency at Bowling Green State University New Music Festival

Sarah was honored to be Co-Composer-in-Residence (along with her husband, composer Steven Mackey) at the 38th Annual Bowling Green New Music Festival. Here’s a quote from her Facebook post about the event. (You can check out her Instagram or Facebook page for more pictures and details.):

“Wow. What a spectacular week at The 38th Annual Bowling Green New Music Festival! Met so many wonderful new friends, heard a lot of inspiring new music, was indulged with absurdly good performances of my own music, and felt my heart grow larger with the utter joy that is making and talking music with good people. So much gratitude to the indefatigable Kurt Doles and the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music for inviting Steven and me to be Co-Composers-in-Residence; to Christopher Dietz for conducting the Bowling Green New Music Ensemble and Shara Nova in ‘Unremembered’; to Latitude 49 for the astonishing performances of my chamber works; to Brian Snow, for the exquisite performance of my solo cello piece; to Emily Freeman Brown, for giving such a robust, vibrant performance of my ‘Something for the Dark’ with the BGSU Philharmonia Orchestra; and to Marilyn ShrudeMikel Kuehn, and Elainie Lillios for running one of the best new music programs in the world. We can’t say enough good things about BGSU College of Musical Arts! Congratulations to all of you!”
