NIU Composer's Works Featured in North Carolina Conferences

Professor Robert Fleisher, Coordinator of Composition and Theory at the NIU School of Music, recently had works featured at two conferences in North Carolina.

Dr. Fleisher's composition Secrets was performed on February 5 by pianist Tomoko Deguchi (Winthrop University; Rock Hill, SC) at the Region IV conference of the Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI), hosted by the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. He was one of 60 composers from around the USA and Canada whose works were selected from more than 240 who submitted works. The timing of the conference also permitted him to be among the first visitors to the new International Civil Rights Center and Museum in downtown Greensboro, which opened earlier that week (built around the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter about which much has been written during the last 50 years).

The second conference featuring his work was the "CHAT" (Collaborations: Humanities, Arts & Technology) Digital Arts Festival. On both February 17 and 19, Bob's electro-acoustic composition, Loretto Alfresco, was heard throughout the day in the Peacock Atrium of the FedEx Global Education Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, as part of a "mix" of fixed media works. Loretto Alfresco was one of 42 works selected from more than 120 works submitted internationally.
