OCU Composer's Work Performed in Carnegie Hall
A composition by Dr. Kris Maloy, instructor of music composition at Oklahoma City University, was performed at Carnegie Hall. Maloy’s “Quartet in Four Actions” was performed May 3 at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall by the Florida-based Enhake ensemble. In addition, his “Song of the Moon” was a finalist in the New York Virtuoso Singers Choral Composition Competition and winner of the 2010 Meistersingers Choral Composition Competition, resulting in June performances in Tustin, Calif., and San Juan Capistrano, Calif. The premiere of Maloy’s “Concerto for Ocarina and Orchestra (Visions & Fantasies),” commissioned by the St. Louis School of Music, was May 2 and May 8. Enhake also featured works by Maloy and fellow OCU composer Edward Knight at its June performances at OK Mozart Festival in Bartlesville. Maloy was artist-in-residence with the Ucross Foundation in Sheridan, Wyoming, May 17-28, working on a second commission from the St. Louis School of Music, to premiere in 2011. He earned his bachelor's degree in music composition from OCU, his master's from Bowling Green State University, and doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin.
