Aug 2018 - World Premiere of Frank Horvat's composition, The Thailand HRDS - photo credit - Jeremy Sale/Protection International

Ultimate Composer Experience (a photo recap)

This week was the world premiere and recording of my composition, The Thailand HRDs, commissioned by Protection International. Based off of the photo essay by Luke Duggleby entitled, For Those Who Died Trying.

This collection of pics gives you a look at this amazing experience.

Rehearsal of Frank Horvat's composition, The Thailand HRDs, by Mivos Quartet
On Monday morning, I picked up a Minivan from a ZipCar lot and headed to the airport to pick up Mivos (they’re based in New York). We then headed to Lakeshore Arts to rehearse the piece, have lunch and hang out. I had never met Olivia, Lauren, Victor or Mariel before - what exceptionally nice people. And super talented. I was blown away by their high level of accuracy!
