Earlier this year, the ensemble Sybarite5 worked with student composers at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. The musicians of Sybarite5 were so impressed with these students' talent and expressiveness that they decided to perform all of these student works. Over the next two weeks, Classical MPR brings you pieces by these student composers.

This week's Regional Spotlight includes:

"A Storm Strained Sky" by Logan Larson

"Abrasions" by Shafer Stromwall

"Angles" by Sam Milligan
