My Awarded Projects
Treefalls is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to the presentation of contemporary chamber music written by living, active composers. Through a series of free concerts, Treefalls endeavors to offer the public inventive and creative new works performed by professional musicians who support New Music. Through open Calls for Scores, Commissioning Projects, and active research in the field, the organization presents concerts that are both educational and entertaining.
Since 2014, Treefalls has succeeded in its mission to bring New Chamber Music to Spartanburg from all over the country, giving life to new works, highlighting music by local composers. The community’s reaction has been overwhelmingly positive – audiences regularly number over 120 listeners each concert and many times that tuning in to Facebook Live. And while the goal is to stay true to the intimate nature or Chamber Music, Treefalls also strives to reach and engage, educate, and entertain as many as possible.
In addition to its chamber series, Treefalls has partnered with several different organizations in Spartanburg including Bloomberg Philanthropy’s “Seeing Spartanburg in a New Light,” Southern Methodist College for their recent Presidential Inauguration, and the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra in presenting New Chamber Music and creating more opportunities for young composers and composers from underrepresented groups.
