University Professor of Composition Augusta Read Thomas has an exciting year lined up as we move into 2015. There will be six world premieres of new works happening across the country, and the 6th CD in her six-disc series with Nimbus Records drops in April. Many of her other works are also being performed by noteworthy musicians and ensembles in the US, the UK, and Switzerland. Augusta will also be spearheading the creation of a 4-day long new music festival here in Chicago that will happen in the Fall of 2016, called the Ear Taxi Festival.
