New PARMA Artist: Sally Reid

Tennessee-based composer Sally Reid has signed on with PARMA to record "Three Trifles" for alto saxophone and multi-percussion to be included on an upcoming compilation. The percussion will include four tom-toms, two temple blocks, cowbell, suspended cymbal, four timpani, tambourine, two crotales, and bowed/mallet-ed marimba.

Sally is a faculty member and department chair at Lipscomb University in Tennessee. She has won a composition prize from Mu Phi Epsilon, annual ASCAP awards since 1987, and first prize at the Fifth International Festival of Women Composers in 1998. She also served for a time as editor of the International League of Women Composers Journal.

This will be Sally’s second inclusion on a PARMA release – her “Fiuggi Fanfare” for 5 saxophones was featured on MOSAIC through Society of Composers, Inc.
