Premiere update: The commission I recently finished for Cody Muller, “The Lord Is My Shepherd” for bass vocalist and piano, will be premiered on Thursday, January 12th, 2012 at 1:00. Cody is performing the work as part of his vocal seminar. I will be in attendance and will attempt to get a recording.
Arrangement update: I have been asked to arrange Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Put Your Records On” for the Beltones. It will be performed in their spring concert in April (or May).
Composition update: I have begun a choral setting of Carl Sandberg’s “Nocturne in a Deserted Brickyard.” It will be for SATB chorus and solo flute, and whenever the flute is not playing, it will feel like an a cappella work.
