Rose Lewis Assembles a Group of Local All-Stars in a Program Featuring Her Distinctive Original Music
Rose Lewis was a member first of an award winning Lawrence University’s Conservatory of Music. She went on to perform with major artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Diane Reeves, teaching school based bands, and has freelanced with a greater number of groups than can be listed here. Way back in 1991, Rose won the Minnesota Composer’s Forum’s Composer Commissioning Project, and that opened the door to performing her work. Unfortunately, Rose was on the shelf due to illness for 16 years. But the illness is over with, and Rose leads a group of selected local players such as husband Greg Lewis, David Milne and Graydon Peterson into Jazz Central Studios, Thursday January 3 at 7:30 PM. Rose got together with Phil Nusbaum to talk about her composing.
