The Mesquite Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce its first Composer-in-Residence, Kevin Day. Selected by Music Director Felix Torres, Day will begin his residency with the start of the 19/20 season for a two-year term continuing through July 31, 2021.
As part of Day’s residency, the MSO will present the world premiere performance of “Danza del Sol” as part of the MSO season opener on September 14, 2019. The MSO will perform additional works during this time by Day including two further world premieres.
Music Director Felix Torres said, “We are delighted to establish the Mesquite Symphony Orchestra’s first-ever Composer-in-Residence program. Injecting new music into the repertoire is important for the longevity of our craft and to continue providing new, relevant programming to our audiences. Kevin’s music is full of energy and highly accessible, and I am thrilled to share his music with our audience.”
