I’m excited to announce the launch of two new works – one for band, and one for choir. See details below.
Band Consortium – Grade 3-3.5 work:
I’m starting a new band work in 6/8 time, inspired by the sunken city of Port Royal, Jamaica. The area, notorious as a wealthy pirate haven, was struck by a series of disasters which eventually sunk the city under the ocean. The work starts with a pirate song, followed by the disaster striking, and the sinking of the city. In the end, you can hear a pirate hymn from the submerged ghosts. The working title is “The Sunken City.” The buy-in for ensembles is $50. Use the form below to register your intent to become a member of the consortium.
Choir Consortium – for SA/piano, and SATB/piano
I’ve long been a fan of the elegant and lyrical poetry of Sara Teasdale. Her works are in the public domain in the US. As such, I’ve started a piece using the poem “The Winter Blue Jay.” It’s a beautiful secular poem inspired by winter imagery and romance. The buy-in for choirs is $30. Use the form below to register your intent to become a member of the consortium.
Use this link to officially express interest in these works. I look forward to delivering them this summer, for use in fall and winter concerts! Regular updates will be sent to respondents as the projects proceed.
