Christian Hartman ('20, cello performance) will be performing a solo cello work by Kathryn Blake ('21, composition) at the District New Music Coalition's New Music DC 2022 Conference. Kathryn's piece Threnody for the Prematurely Departed will be part of the 1:00 P.M. concert on Sunday, October 16th at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. A full schedule of events and tickets for the conference can be found here.

Kathryn's piece was also featured in an August 2022 article on the Hong Kong Cellist Society's blog entitled "Why You Should Learn This Piece" by Brian Patrick Bromberg. The article includes a recording of Christian's performance and describes the technical and musical aspects of the work that make it engaging to perform.

Congrats to Kathryn and Christian!
