World Premiere Performances of Meira Warshauer Symphony No. 1 Living,
Breathing Earth by Dayton Philharmonic on April 26 and 28

The World Premiere performances of Meira Warshauer's Symphony No. 1 -
'Living, Breathing Earth' will be given by the Dayton Philharmonic, Neal

This new work, commissioned by the Dayton Philharmonic, South
Carolina Philharmonic, and Western Piedmont Symphony of North Carolina,
has been described by the composer: 'the title, Living, Breathing Earth,
came to me in contemplating the image of the rain forests as lungs of
the earth.  I felt our planet, alive with all variety of creatures and
plants living in symbiosis with each other, breathing in and out, and
the planet as a whole, pulsing with breath.' You can read Carson Cooman's
Music & Vision Daily interview with the composer about the new work at
http://www.mvdaily.com/articles/2007/01/meira-warshauer.htm.  You can

Warshauer at http://www.daytonphilharmonic.com/content.jsp?articleId=3D961.

Other works on the Cosmic Voyage program include Joaquin Rodrigo's
Concierto de Aranjuez with guest guitarist Almer Imamovic and Holst's

Dahlman chorus director.
