Dr. Jerome Reed's CD Reviewed in Summer 2011 Flute Quarterly
Among the CD reviews featured in the Summer 2011 Flute Quarterly was Diamonds Uncovered, a recording of contemporary flute music performed by Deanna R. Little and Jerome Reed. The reviewers consistently referred to the "high-quality playing," noting that "[the performers] manage beautiful clarity through excellent articulation. Little never sacrifices sound and Reed does not allow the piano to become overwhelmed by the adventurous harmonies and agility of the writing....With this recording, Deanna Little and Jerome Reed have made a substantial contribution to the recorded repertoire." Congratulations to Dr. Reed and his collaborators on this accomplishment!
Composer, professor of theory, and department chair Dr. Sally Reid was one of three composers selected for a project to explore how film scores affect audiences, how music sets the tone of a movie, and how composers approach films. The event, SCORE_UNDERSCORE!, was part of Christ Church Cathedral's Sacred Space for the City Arts Series and was a collaboration of the Nashville Composers Association, the Nashville Film Festival and FilmNashville. Two of her compositions were performed alongside the works of Nashville composers Scott Hallgren and Rachel Fogarty.
