Composer Lee Hyla taught at New England Conservatory from 1992 through 2007 and was cochair or chair of the composition department for most of that time. This memorial concert brings together performers of Hyla's music who had the opportunity to work with him during his time here. Firebird Ensemble is honored to be a part of this concert in which they will perform Hyla's work, "Field Guide," which was commissioned by the St. Botolph Club and Firebird Ensemble and premiered by Firebird in Jordan Hall in 2006. Members of Firebird will also be performing other chamber works of Hyla's during the program. Firebird is honored to be a part of this concert commemorating the life of such an important and valuable composer to Firebird Ensemble, Boston, and American music.
