Commissions, premieres and grants

Crimson’s commission projects include Music for Violin and Harp by Patricio Da Silva (Atlanta, 2016), Flutter by Kirsten Broberg (Hong Kong, 2017), and Still/Nervous by Gary Schocker (Hong Kong, 2017).   Collaborations in progress include works by Paul Patterson and Libby Larsen.

Crimson Duo has received funding from the American Harp Society grant program and the University of North Texas Scholarly and Creative Activity program, making these projects possible.

An avid supporter of new compositions for harp, Jaymee Haefner has recently commissioned and premiered several new works, including In Arkadia for horn and harp by Gary Schocker (Los Angeles, 2015), Better than One and Snow for harp duet by Gary Schocker (New Orleans, 2015), Et descendit for flute, viola and harp by Sungji Hong (Denton, Texas, 2016).
