From “The Corner Room” to the Concert Hall

For Rachel Grimes, having her work premiered by the Louisville Orchestra at their Festival of American Music last spring was a dream come true. The prolific Louisville musician has several albums under her belt (both with the indie-rock chamber ensemble “Rachel’s” and solo), and has composed music for bands, chamber orchestras, and film. But the LO commission marked her first opportunity to compose and debut her own work with a major orchestra.

LO Music Director Teddy Abrams says the Kentucky composer was a natural choice for the festival, which showcased music from this country— “Her music combines a sophisticated, beautifully detailed sound-world with an Americana simplicity of expression, melody and harmonic sweep.” And cultivating the work of living composers, he says, “is of the utmost importance for both this orchestra and the community.”

Check out this rare glimpse into one composer's creative process, and how her music emerged from private imagination into the concert hall.
