Hilary Hahn commissioned new encore works

Preparatory alumna and Peabody National Advisory Council member Hilary Hahn, violin, has commissioned 26 composers to write new encore works, and then conducted an online contest to find a 27th piece for her project, In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores. She debuted 13 of these during a recital tour in 2012 and completed a tour of the remaining 14. In the fall, a two-CD set of all 27 will be issued.
