Barbara Harbach Wins Women in Music-Columbus Composition Competition
Barbara Harbach's American Solstice for flute, clarinet, violin, viola,
cello, bass and piano is the winner of the Ohio-based Women in Music-Columbus
Composition Competition. Visit them at http://www.womeninmusiccolumbus.com/.
Musicians from the organization will perform the composition on April
18 as part of the Sundays at the Huntington (Recital Hall) series at
Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.
"I am pleased and honored that Women in Music-Columbus chose my piece
from a highly competitive pool of compositions," Harbach said. "It is
always thrilling to have one's music recognized."
The concert will predate the release of the composer's new Music
of Barbara Harbach Vol. 6 CD, due in late Spring on MSR Classics.
The seven-part series will conclude in 2011. Visit
