Opus 31

The audio recording of each student composition along with a description of the work in the student's own words are listed in program order below. Follow the links to listen and/or download these recordings. Please credit the student composer and Music-COMP if you share this work.

For a full concert DVD or Blu-ray disc, order here and pay with a credit card. If you prefer to pay by check, send $15 for a standard DVD or $20 for a Blu-ray disc which includes shipping to: Music-COMP, 30 Steeplebush Road, Essex Junction, VT 05452. One copy of the DVD will be mailed to each selected student when the DVD's are completed. UPDATE: I previewed a bit of the production yesterday. It's not going to be finished until late June most likely and will be mailed. This production is very exciting with lots of student rehearsal footage for a behind the scenes look. This is a treasure!

Thanks to Jeff Perrin, audio engineer for Opus 31 and all previous Opus events.
