“Wind Odyssey” explores both programmatic and artistic developments in music, and features all female composers. Pieces include “Odyssey” by Kimberly Archer; “Dance the Joy Alive” by Nicole Piunno, winner of the 2018 Female Composer Competition; the world premiere of “Into the Unknown” by Karen Robertson, honorable mention in the 2018 Female Composer Competition; “One Life Beautiful” by Julie Giroux; and “Dream Machine” by Katherine Bergman.

“More diverse composers have emerged in recent decades as a development in the profession and in our culture,” Raya says. “It is exciting to present these lesser-known composers and works.”
