Earlier this afternoon, Judith Stillman was featured on the NBC 10 Facebook Live. During her time on the show, she so beautifully shared a piece of her composition. Her show entitled April in Paris with Poulenc, features five RI Philharmonic Orchestra members. These include, flutist Rachel Braude, oboist Denise Plaza-Martin, clarinetist Ian Greitzer, French hornist Kevin Owen, and bassoonist Ronald Haroutunian. The piece is a collaboration among various art institutions. April in Paris is not only a concert but a play as well, in conjunction with visual features for the audience- transforming the performance from a show into an experience. All these aspects aid in portraying the story of the great French composer and pianist, Francis Poulenc.
