Composer Molly Joyce.

Coming up on this week’s Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline, we’ll hear new music from violinist Rakhi Singh, as well as pieces by Daniel Kidane and Jonathan Bailey Holland. Plus, solo harp music by Molly Joyce titled “Embodiment,” a work that highlights the innate impossibility of creating sustained tones on the instrument.

Then, we continue our series of composer talks with two fellows from the Suncoast Composer Fellowship Program: Angela Elizabeth Slater and Zachary Konick. Plus, we’ll hear their music, including a work for winds and strings, and another for hammered dulcimer.

Also featuring music by Helen Grime, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Gabriella Smith, and others; and performances by violinist Caitlin Edwards, harpist Chelsea Lane, United Strings of Europe, Lysander Piano Trio, yMusic, and more.

Join us Sunday night from 8 to 10 ET on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9. Listen online at wsmr.org.
