This recital will present music by two of our late members; Dawn Culbertson, a founder of our group, and Steve Mafkofski, a past president; as well as premiers from our current members. There will be a variety of groups and musicians playing, including: pianist Ruth Rose; Mezzo-Soprano Megan Ihnen accompanied by pianist Hillary Kruh; Sonora Ensemble (clarinet quartet and percussion); Pictures on Silence (harp and saxophone); and Cellist Adam Gonzalez and pianist Diana Greene.
For 20 years, the Baltimore Composers Forum has been an important part of the cultural scene
in the Baltimore area. Over a thousand new works by area composers have been presented.
The music at our concerts represent a wide variety of styles, from experiments in sounds to
multi-media works to neo-romantic compositions, and to jazz-influenced compositions.
