(L to R): Carolina Heredia, Megan McDevitt, Brandon Scott Rumsey, and Brien Henderson

February 10, 2017 — Bassist Megan McDevitt gave the world premiere to four new works, all of which she commissioned herself, from emerging composers. Among these was Brien Henderson’s Confession (for double bass).

McDevitt, a DMA candidate at the University of Michigan, commissioned the new works to be programmed alongside four well-established pieces of repertoire. Confession was paired with Vincent Persichetti’s Parable XVII for double bass. McDevitt also commissioned new works from Carolina Heredia, Rex Isenberg, and Brandon Scott Rumsey.
