Frank Ticheli
In C-Dorian

Frank Ticheli (b. 1958) is a composer of orchestral, choral, chamber, and concert band works. He lives in Los Angeles California, where he is a Professor of Composition at the University of Southern California.

In C Dorian was composed in the wake of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by (and dedicated to) Terry Riley’s groundbreaking work “In C”, this piece sprang from a need to create music for musicians during a time when full ensembles could not meet altogether in a closed space-a piece that could be played by any combination of instruments and in any number.
