The Bennington Chamber Music Festival of the East welcomes chamber musicians who are amateurs in the best sense of the word, and provides the opportunity to perform both traditional and contemporary music. They also welcome featured composers, who each spend a week in residence. Each creates a commissioned piece to premiere during the residency, and also mentor a composition fellow. Shatin will be in residence the week of August 4-11. Her commissioned piece is a wind quintet, called Cinqchronie, suggestive of the close interaction of all members of the ensemble to weave together the harmony of the whole. During her residency, Shatin will also mentor composition fellow Kristina Warren, as well as meeting with the other composition fellows. She will also give a presentation on her music and, in addition to the premiere by the program participants, will coach faculty performers on their interpretation of Ockeghem Variations.
