BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra performs Gloria Coates

Concert will feature works of member Gloria Coates

At our March meeting, Gloria Coates, one of our esteemed members, will be our speaker (interviewed by Valerie Errante). A concert in which three of her symphonies are performed will be aired on BBC next week and we would like to share the info with our members, in case they are interested.

The work of AAUPW member Gloria Coates was recently featured in a concert in Scotland which will be aired on the BBC Radio Saturday, January 12th at 11pm our time. The program is called "Hear and Now,"and will feature three symphonies written by Gloria and performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under conductor Ilan Volkov.

It is rare to have the entire concert devoted to one person, especially a woman composer, so this is a big honor for Gloria. You can listen to it on your computer via BBC Radio 3 "Hear and Now" January 12, 2019, 23:00 local time.
