More music from Scott Ordway Gr’13

It seems Scott Ordway — a Benjamin Franklin doctoral fellow in the Music Department — had an even busier day on Dec. 12 than I’d realized. While I mentioned the performance of his Sextet: Water Music in my post and video from the Penn Composer’s Guild concert, it turns out that wasn’t the only time his music was performed that day.

Just a few hours before the Composer’s Guild concert, Ordway — the composer-in-residence at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in West Philly — conducted his commissioned choral composition Missa Brevis for the Virgin of Guadalupe. The singers included St. Mary’s choir, along with professional singers and guest musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music.

    It’s always a pleasure to be notified of Molly’s posts about the arts at Penn. She does a great job of keeping on top of what’s happening. Let’s all wish her a very happy holiday season!
