1 May

DePaul alums; if you’re looking for a place to unwind after Vincentian Service Day (nice tie-in, huh?), you can enjoy some new tunes from a venerated DePaul music professor.

Composer/pianist George Flynn, who served as chair of Musicianship and Composition at DePaul for 25 years. has just released his new CD, American City, and is having a CD release party this Saturday, starting at 6:30 pm.

Here’s more on the CD from website All About Jazz

The music of George Flynn is no mere stance; his melodies are full of circumstance. George Flynn’s compositions have the ability to overwhelm and amaze with intense expression and musical abandon. Flynn, late in his career as a faculty member at DePaul University in Chicago, made the decision to write a work for each of the major ensembles in the School of Music- the chorus/chamber choir (St. Vincent’s Words, 1995), the orchestra (The Density of Memory, 1997) and wind ensemble (American City, 1998). These works on American City are all performed by DePaul University musicians – faculty, students and an alumna, and were recorded in the DePaul University Concert Hall (2006-2007.)
