More media mention MICF

Media attention for the 2014 Mizzou International Composers Festival continued into the week of the fest, with St. Louis magazine publishing a preview story, including quotes from guest composers Zhou Long and Nico Muhly, online on Wednesday.

Then on Thursday, the Columbia Missourian ran their story about the festival, while a separate feature in the accompanying Vox Magazine focused on three of this year’s resident composers.

On Friday, the festival was featured in a report on the morning newscast of local NBC affiliate KOMU.

As for the photo accompanying this post, it’s not from the news media, but rather was shot by Christopher Weiss on Tuesday night when he and his fellow resident composers went out for dinner at Chim’s Thai Kitchen and encountered themselves, in poster form, on the restaurant’s front door.

From left, that’s Nick Omiccioli, Holly Harrison, Ian Dicke, Michael Schacter, Ashley Fu-Tsun Wang, Texu Kim and José Martínez. Weiss, while not visible in the photo, can be found on Twitter at @weisscomposer.
