Mizzou New Music Ensemble premieres “The Garden Symphony”

The Mizzou New Music Ensemble last Sunday traveled to the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis to take part in an event paying tribute to Peter Raven, director emeritus of the Garden.

The Ensemble presented the world premiere performance of “The Garden Symphony,” a four-part work co-composed by Mizzou students Michael Anderson, Stephanie Berg, Laura Griggs, and David Witter, as well as a new piece for oboe and electronics composed in honor of Raven by MU professor W. Thomas McKenney.
