Admission: $20 | Info: carlsen@maine.edu

With the Elliott Schwartz Memorial Practice Rooms Project, coming one day before what would have been Elliott’s eighty-fourth birthday, we pay tribute to the longtime professor at Bowdoin College, mentor and supporter of composers around the world, guiding spirit of the Back Cove Contemporary Music Festival, widely-performed composer of challenging, theatrical, witty, deeply expressive music, and much-missed friend. Nine composers from Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Indiana are writing new pieces for this event, to be performed by as many as nine pianists at the same time on the pianos in the conservatory practice rooms on the third floor. Doors will be open and the audience will sit in the hallway, immersing themselves in a stereophony of sounds coming at them from many directions at once.

The concert also celebrates the Portland Conservatory’s partnership with Steinway and the pianos they have provided for the use of our teachers and students.

Admission is $20. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Fall 2020 Back Cove Contemporary Music Festival, an important showcase for new concert music in Maine. Please contact the conservatory office for information about providing additional support for the festival through sponsorships or purchasing space in the program booklet for a personal greeting or memory of Elliott Schwartz.
