Introducing American Composer/Pianist Andy Iorio

Posted by on Jan 20, 2016 in Events | Comments Off on Introducing American Composer/Pianist Andy Iorio

When Andy Iorio delivers his “Composing Music” lecture to aspiring composers, he likens the process to photography and tells students that while photographers use images to freeze a moment in time, composers use musical notes to record an event or a feeling.

One of Andy’s first musical memories was when, at age five, he climbed up on his mother’s piano bench and taught himself to play a traditional lullaby that...

Arstidir’s Live Performance Broadcast Tonight on Echoes!

Posted by on Sep 29, 2015 in Blog, Events | Comments Off on Arstidir’s Live Performance Broadcast Tonight on Echoes!

Playing guitars, violin, piano and cello, these musicians assay some of the introspective songs of their album, Hvel with vocal harmonies that will leave you breathless.
