Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) at Duke Divinity School and the Duke University Music Department will host a composers' workshop led by Stephen Jaffe, Mary and James H. Semans professor of music composition in the Duke University Department of Music Department, and with James MacMillan, internationally recognized Scottish composer and conductor.
During the class, MacMillan will listen and respond to the work of graduate students in music composition. The class also will include a performance of MacMillan's Kiss on Wood, for cello and piano.
The free class is open to the public. Pre-registration is not necessary.
The class is part of “Sounding the Passion: Encounters in Poetry, Theology, and Music,” a series of April 9-13 events culminating in the U.S. premiere of the newly commissioned St. Luke Passion by MacMillan.
