Congratulations D. Edward Davis!

We received many wonderful new works, and it was tough to narrow it down. Ultimately, we found that Mr. Davis's "blackbirds" (for double bass & live electronics) best fit the overall program, and we are excited to include it in our May concert. Many thanks to everyone who participated.
