LWC students in the Wind Ensemble had the amazing privilege of meeting and interviewing nationally recognized composer Dr. Kimberly Archer, who is the Professor of Composition at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. We performed one of her latest works, "Fanfare Politeia" on our last concert, and we are going to perform it again at a festival in April. Dr. Archer discussed her career, compositional techniques, sources of inspiration, and what it was like having her composition receive its premiere performance at President Biden's Presidential Inauguration. What a great experience for the students!
