CREO HONORED BY ARTS COMMISSION
Creo, the Old Dominion University contemporary-music ensemble, has been selected by the Virginia Commission for the Arts for inclusion in its roster of performing artists and ensembles.
The commission will list Creo in its 2004-05 tour directory, which includes Virginia's top touring artists and groups, and will also pay as much as half of the presenters frees for Creo's tours in the state.
Founded in 1998 by Andrey Kasparov, associate professor of music at ODU, Creo is currently the only professional new-music ensemble in Virginia. Core members of the group are clarinetist F. Gerard Errante, pianist Oksana Lutsyshyn, mezzo-soprano Lisa Coston and percussionist David Walker. In the last three years, Creo has performed at the University of Iowa, participated in the Society of Composers Inc. conference, and brought to campus composers and performers from across the country and around the world.
