“I create music for performing musicians and seek to fully engage them as they learn and perform my compositions.” – Richard J. Chandler
Week of May 14th, 2018. As a composer, Richard J. Chandler’s works have been performed by the Minnesota Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra, The Bethlehem Chamber Orchestra, the St. Cloud State University Wind Ensemble, in college recitals at SCSU, CSB-SJU and the University of MN as well as in recitals throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul Metro and in Greater Minnesota. As a performer, Richard plays bassoon, saxophones and recorders with The CloudWinds Trio, who performs his compositions. Richard has played bassoon with The Amadeus Chamber Symphony and bassoon and contrabassoon with the St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra.
Both the St. Paul and the Minneapolis performances were well received by the audiences! Of the people that I invited, 18 were able to be at the concerts! I also heard a number of very nice comments from audience members. And the orchestra, and conductor Jay Fishman, did a fabulous job with my piece and the other works on the program. A highlight for me was hearing my piece, and Prokofiev's 2nd Violin Concerto, rehearsed and performed. Hats off also for violinist Rachel Lee Priday, who played the concerto!
