About

Flourishing American composer Stacy Garrop’s first album of orchestral music features the world-premiere recording of her Mythology Symphony, a five-movement work inspired by famous female figures from Greek mythology. Characterized by Garrop’s talent for lyricism and vivid storytelling, the symphony receives a typically vibrant and compelling performance by Billboard-charting international conductor Alonda de la Parra leading the Chicago College of Performing Arts (CCPA) Symphony Orchestra of Roosevelt University.

Under the direction of Peabody Conservatory-based conductor Markand Thakar, the CCPA Chamber Orchestra delivers world-premiere recordings of Garrop’s mythic Thunderwalker and Shadow, a moving interplay of counterpoint, shifting textures and profound emotion.

Garrop’s music “excites the enthusiasm of performers and audiences alike” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). She has “a sharp ear for instrumental color and narrative form: She can tell a story” (Detroit Free Press). Gramophone calls her a composer whose work displays “vision and breadth”. The Journal of the International Association of Women in Music proclaims, “Without question, Garrop is poised to make significant and lasting contributions to [the] world of classical music.”
