SPLICE arrives to Philly this Thursday!

Here’s the schedule:

The concert is free and open to the public. Bring some friends, family, etc. (unfortunately, no pets allowed)!

We could still use a few volunteers to help move gear from Rock to Klein on Friday between 3:15-4pm, and from Klein to Rock after the concert from 8:45/9 to 9:30pm.

Also, keep an eye out on the Boyer official instagram this Friday – conTemplum is doing a takeover for the SPLICE residency!

Just a reminder that we are not meeting tonight on Zoom.

See you at the concert!

ConTemplum is Back!

We would like to officially welcome back all Boyer students for the 2022 Spring Semester! Please look forward to the opportunities and events we have in store for the semester.

This Wednesday, we are super excited to host Wendy Bickford (DMA Clarinet) and Katherine Ventura (DMA Harp) for a virtual workshop. They will be discussing how to compose for their instruments both individually and together as a duo, and bring contemporary pieces for us to listen to.

We are planning to host Wendy and Katie again later this semester for an in-person reading session of new student works. If you’d like to compose for them, don’t miss the workshop this Wednesday!

The workshop will take place from 7:30-8:30pm on Zoom this Wednesday 2/2! See you there!
