Today we are pleased to shine the Festival spotlight on longtime PARMA composer Rain Worthington. Rain lives in New York and serves as the Director of Development for New York Women Composers, Inc. Her music has a distinctly unique voice within the field of contemporary music that touches the human heart with delicate, powerful, and emotionally evocative writing.
Rain’s music has been performed internationally and has been featured in articles and reviews in American Record Guide, IAWM Journal, Chamber Music magazine, Fanfare, and MusicWeb-International. She has been awarded grants from Meet the Composer, ASCAP, the American Music Center, NYFA, and the American Composers Forum.
Rain’s music has been featured on three PARMA releases and she is currently working with PARMA on releasing selections from her chamber works. Rain’s violin duo, “Night Stream,” was recorded with PARMA in 2013 and will be performed at the PARMA Music Festival Friday, August 15th during the PENDULUM Chamber Music concert.
Listen to an excerpt of Rain’s upcoming release, LUMINESCENCE, below, keep an eye out for her next release, and hear some of her music live next week.
