Vayo to be Featured at Chicago Composers Orchestra Concert
Oct. 4, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— A composition by David Vayo, Fern Rosetta Sherff Professor of Composition
and Theory at Illinois Wesleyan University, will be featured as a part of the Chicago
Composers Orchestra’s fourth season opening concert. The performance will be held
at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 in St. James Cathedral (65 E. Huron St., Chicago).
Vayo’s work, “Wellspring,” is the concert’s headlining composition. The piece, which
was composed in 2001, is dedicated to Vayo’s wife, Marie-Susanne Langille.
The concert will open the Chicago Composers Orchestra’s 2013-2014 season. Formed in
2010 by Illinois Wesleyan Class of 2007 alumnus Brian Baxter and Randall West, the
Chicago Composers Orchestra dedicates itself to the performance and advocacy of orchestral
music by today’s composers. The organization seeks to enhance the orchestral experience
for performers, composers and audiences and bring contemporary orchestral music to
the Chicago community.
A world premiere by Rob Deemer and works by Ian Dicke and Paul Kerekes will also be
featured in the concert.
