Artists from Mirror Visions Ensemble performed a full program of songs at Hendricks Chapel in Syracuse as part of their "This Land is Ours" Series.  This concert begins at 4:00 p.m. on October 3rd. Works performed included commissioned works from Francine Trester, H. Leslie Adams, Mohammed Fairouz, Adolphus Hailstork, Carlos Simon, and Harold Meltzer. 

Now in its 29th season, Mirror Visions Ensemble has championed and fostered the work of new composers, providing a platform for their works to be showcased through the commissioning and performance of over 105 works by more than 35 composers, including Gilda Lyons, Adolphus Hailstork, Tom Cipullo, Scott Wheeler, and Pulitzer Prize recipient Yehudi Wyner. Dedicated to developing the future catalogue of vocal chamber music, the ensemble launched its first-ever Young Composers Competition in the 2015-2016 season, awarding four commissions to early-career composers.
