Tori Ovel, also known as the reason you are all likely here today, is graduating in less than a month with her Bachelors of Music in Music Composition and Theory from the University of Northern Iowa. While there, she has had the fantastic opportunity to work with several professors whose guidance and support have helped her to create this extra-musical experience: Dr. Randall Harlow, Dr. Alan Schmitz, Dr. Jessica Moon and Mr. Chris Merz. Throughout her journey at UNI, she has studied composition with Dr. Jonathan Schwabe, and is finishing up her studies with Dr. Alan Schmitz. Last summer, she voyaged through three summer composition programs (yes, it was very expensive) : Charlotte New Music Festival, Summer Composition Intensive at St. Mary’s, and the Atlantic Music Festival. A few of the pieces on today’s program were inspired by, written for, or written during these programs. After graduation, Tori will be attending (there really ought to be a school decision here, but as of April 8th, she still did not have enough info from schools to make this decision. Today, April 12th, she might be able to clue you in about which school she shall be attending in the fall) to continue studying the craft of composition. When she grows up, she intends to attain a position creating musical experiences like the one here today. Her interests in music are vast, with a “no stone unturned” instrumentation philosophy. That is to say, she rarely shies away from the opportunity to write for something new or different. Ask her about her ditty for pop bottles (composition class in 2011) if you don’t believe it. Stick around for the last piece if you think she’s kidding.

About the Music
Permission to Cross, January 2015.
The main intervallic motive for "Permission to Cross" was inspired by the pitches produced by a cross walk button in downtown Iowa City in July of 2014. Having never written an actual minimalist piece, I decided to use this motive and the saxophone quartet instrumentation to cross minimalism off of my compositional bucket list. Unfortunately, the piece is still far from true minimalism. Alas, the bucket list grows.
Crouton Mood, Octoberish 2014.
Crouton Mood was written for my dear friend, my honeychild, Madeline Young. I tried to mix my compositional style with the “new music” brand of clarinet works that she enjoys playing. What resulted is Crouton Mood, whose title comes from a Facebook post about Madeline’s thoughts for the evening, some of which were difficult to get sorted out—something a younger Madeline would have called a “Crouton Mood.”

Kathleen Roling Graduated from UNI with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and a focus in Graphic Design. She mainly works in Watercolor but is not limited to it. Soft pastels, acrylic paints, oil paints, pencils, charcoal, and ink are a few other mediums she uses. Her greatest artistic influences come from the great Impressionistic artists. Monet and Van Gogh inspired her interests and appeal to vivid use of color.
“My joy is in taking inspiration from God’s creation and honoring Him with how I portray it. I’ve always considered God as the first artist because anything I do is only a reflection of what He did first and an outpouring of the creativity He placed inside me.” – Kathleen Roling
