In The Works

Honeck-Moss Productions is proud to present “In The Works.” This exciting new series was conceived as an opportunity for composers to try out new work in front of an audience and see how it plays in a supportive environment. It is also an opportunity to create community among the composers and their performers.

In The Works will be presented monthly and feature three composers or composer teams, each presenting about 20 minutes of new material. This month features the works of composers: Bryan Blaskie & Laurie Hochman, Annabelle Lee Revak, and Eric Sorrels. Hosted by: Thomas Honeck.

With performances by: Elyse Anderson, Erica Lynn Bridge, Caitlin Gallogly, Lisette Glowdowski, Kamryn Harris, Jamie Maletz, Doron Mitchell, Cheeyang Ng, Reagan Pender, Kelly Plescia, Cheeyang Ng, Mikki Sodergren, and Justin Yu.
