This Sunday on October 23rd, the Long Island Composer Alliance is hosting A Special LICA Birthday Concert in honor of three long island composer birthdays, including the co-founder of LICA, and PARMA artist, Marga Richter! The event will take place at Bryant Library, 2 Paper Mill Road in Roslyn, NY.
Marga Richter has released two albums on Ravello Records, a single album, POETIC IMAGED BEYOND POETRY and a compilation album, VANGUARDS; VOLUME 2.
Marga received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from The Julliard School where she has gone on to compose 150 works, which encompass themes from every classical musical genre. Her orchestral works have been played by more than 50 orchestras, including the Atlanta and Milwaukee Symphonies, the Minnesota Orchestra, and recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Marga says, “Composing is my response to a constant desire to transform my perceptions and emotions into music. Everything that touches me, everything I become aware of as beautiful, or mysterious, or painful, or joyful, or unknowable becomes an immediate or eventual source of inspiration. Music is the way I speak to the silence of the universe.”
From all the staff here at PARMA, we’d like to wish long-time PARMA artist Marga Richter a Happy 90th Birthday! Help celebrate and honor this milestone birthday of a talented composer this coming Sunday by attending this event, sharing, and listening to her works.
