Long time members of the NYCC will remember TERRY WINTER OWENS who passed away in 2007. On Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 at 7:30pm, the Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College, the Department of TV and Radio, and HISAM will present a memorial concert of her music. An award-winning internationally published composer, Terry’s primary focus was on chamber music and it is these timeless works that are featured in the program. Her music has been performed all over the world – on every continent, primarily in the US and Western Europe. Terry suffered from leukemia for many years and she finished her last work just one month before she died.

The program features a stellar cast of performers, including: Morris “Arnie” Lang, Richard O’Donnell, the Reizen Ensemble, the Duo Gastesi-Bezerra, Scott Mayfield, Josh Frank, Isabelle O’Connell, David Gould, Christine Perea, and actress Sylvia Rhyns. Works for solo piano, two pianos, piano trio, percussion ensemble and solo instruments will be presented. Introductory remarks by Dr. Brian Willson and Joseph Pehrson.
