Description

This is a concert celebrating the compositional legacy of Dominick Argento, one of Minnesota's leading composers and teachers of composition. The program will be moderated by two of his students whose works are also on the program, David Evan Thomas and Randall Davidson. 

We perform a piece Randall Davidson wrote for us, "Stephen Foster's A Most Knowing Woman (An Exposition of the Seven Elements of Comedy) for Oboe and Bass" (2019).

Randall's online description of the piece gives some idea of what the audience is in for in this theatrical, comedic piece. https://www.randalldavidsonmusic.com/a-most-knowing-woman.html
