Event description

Description

Duluth-based fiddler and singer/songwriter, Gaelynn Lea Tressler will premier a new work for string orchestra with herself as soloist. Last spring Gaelynn Lea gained national attention as winner of the NPR's 2nd annual “Tiny Desk Concert.” Born with osteogenesis imperfecta – or brittle bone disease – she is also an ardent advocate and eloquent spokesperson for the disability community. Tressler conceives the five-movement work as an exploration of disability issues, a plea for disability rights, and a celebration of disability pride. She will be aided in the orchestration of this work by Duluth composer/arranger Bradley Bombardier. Students of the Quartet Project will join the strings of the LSCO for this premiere.
