New Brouwer piece to be performed

Cleveland homegirl composer Margaret Brouwer's "Century's Song," a new work composed in honor of Dover, Ohio's bicentennial, will be performed Saturday at the Tuscarawas Philharmonic's season opener Saturday at Dover High School, the Dover-New Philadelphia "Times Reporter" says.

The newspaper's piece quotes the orchestra's conductor as explaining, "I think of the piece as a kind of musical portrait of Ohio. The middle section is a sweet melody that evokes 19th century parlor music and the opening is a ringing celebration while the concluding march draws on the folk music tradition of Ohio. It's a blend of folk tradition and classical sophistication -- a fitting salute to the ongoing cultural energies in Dover and Tuscarawas County in general."
