Two new compositions by University of Alaska Fairbanks alumna Sheri Throop will premier at a performance by the Borealis Brass in Italy next month. The two compositions, "A Cold Coming We had of It" and "Holy Day of Joy," are also slated to be published, along with another of her compositions, "Playford Dances," by Wiltshire Music in Massapequa, N.Y.

"This is a great accomplishment for her," said Jim Bicigo, associate professor of music at UAF. "It's also a good example of what our graduates can accomplish."

Throop earned a master's degree in music composition in 2006.
