Derek Bermel joins us for the second iteration of the Music in the Making conversation season, bringing to St. Paul his signature and vibrantly assorted musical influences. Bermel will be presenting Murmurations with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, a piece inspired by the mesmerizing flocking movements of starlings. Bermel’s diverse background in ethnomusicology and the study of various folkloric music traditions in addition to his prolific composition and clarinet career are sure to make for an insightful and colorful conversation.
“Bermel’s music is intricate, witty, clear-spoken, tender and extraordinarily beautiful.” —San Francisco Chronicle
