At the close of the readings all of the participants headed downtown to get a taste of the music (and the food) in Memphis beyond the orchestra. The first stop was the famed Beale Street where the composers were finally able to relax after two intense days of readings and take in some of the local bands, including the high-energy rockabilly band The Dempseys. What a great way to close the readings!
