THREE WORLD PREMIERES in Spring 2012:
I’m fortunate to have yet another very busy season to kick off 2012, including the world premieres of three new works:
FEBRUARY 19th (Ball State Univ.), MARCH 1st (ABA Convention), MARCH 16th (Orchestra Hall, Chicago): Paean: Chant and Triumph, a new work for the Ball State University Wind Ensemble in a consortium with John Hersey HS, Lockport Township HS, and the Coastal Communities Concert Band.
APRIL 12th: Concerto for Piano and Winds & Percussion – Pamela Mia Paul and the Univ. of North Texas Wind Symphony, Eugene Corporon conducting. The work is scored for Piano and orchestral winds and percussion, and will be recorded the weekend following the performance. The work will be available to any interested ensemble on April 13th – please contact me for details!
MAY 10th: new work for young band + electronics (roughly grade 3, in EDU music-speak) commissioned by a consortium of high schools and middle schools in North Carolina, led by Arris Golden. I look forward to bringing what I’ve learned with Ecstatic Waters to younger ensembles.
More about each of these shortly!
