Recent Radio Broadcasts

Na Trì Peathraichean, recording from Geenyoch CD broadcast on WCNY's 'Feminine Fusion with Diane Jones', November 20th 2016, 1pm 


















Due to the success of her recent collaboration with Celtic drummer, Catherine Doersch, for 6ixwire's 
Tirean cein (Distant Shores) multi-media project, Barker has embarked on the composition of a new work for wind ensemble and percussionist. The work, titled Caledonia, will feature Doersch in 
the premiere and subsequent 
performances in 2018.
On Friday 14th October 2016, Barker completed the final piece of the puzzle for her new music video. In this instance it was the filming of American clarinetist, Christopher Nichols, at Lewes beach in Delaware. Footage from this shoot will be included in Barker's new video (to be uploaded to her YouTube channel during Summer 2017) for her composition, ...to the pale green sea of evening...
Barker was delighted that her composition, Snowfeathers, for erhu, violin, piano and percussion was performed at the LIU Post Chamber Music Festival on July 21st 2017. The performers were: Nam Sook Lee-Choei, violin; Dale Stuckenbruck, erhu; Heawon Kim, piano; Frank Cassara, percussion

 

Barker is delighted to be returning to Colorado College for further performances of her compositions. The concert, which will take place on September 7th, will feature Barker's song cycle utilizing the poetry of Robert Burns titled, A Lassie's Love, and her composition for clarinet and piano titled ...to the pale green sea of evening...
