Music prof’s compositions premiere

Wilmington College’s Elizabeth Haskins, assistant professor of music, had two of her songs from My Garden, her composition for soprano, violin and piano, premiered in Germany this spring.

A trio of pre-college age, female musicians studying under a voice faculty member from the Peter-Cornelius Conservatory in Mainz, Germany, placed first at the annual Jugend Musiziert (youth making music), state-level competition, and qualified to compete in the national round in Hamburg, where they won a third place prize.

The selections were “There is a Budding Morrow in Midnight” and “Spring Quiet.”
