Gregory Yasinitsky, Regents professor, and Danh Pham, associate professor, music, premiered Yasinitsky’s composition “On the Air,” commissioned by Northwest Public Broadcasting to celebrate the broadcaster’s 100th anniversary and performed by the WSU Symphony Orchestra with Pham conducting. Yasinitsky also orchestrated themes from “On the Air” for solo piano and WSU faculty and student ensembles recorded them in the WSU Recording Studio.

In addition, the McCall (Idaho) SummerFest Orchestra commissioned Yasinitsky to compose a new work to celebrate the festival’s 10th anniversary; it is set to premiere in July.
