Sharp Ears: Composer Mark Olivieri

Apr 25, 2014

In WXXI’s Sharp Ears series, we’ve been hearing from composers and how what they listen to seeps into their music.  Last week we heard from Pulitzer prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon, and today it’s composer Mark Olivieri’s turn.  He’s an Assistant Professor of Music at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and he’s thought a lot about what kind of music draws him in.
