Large Ensemble Pieces
Lunar Vigil, GET 104:07:00 (2017)- for SSATB choir, piano and synthesizer (gr. 4)
This piece was inspired by Captain Mike Collins , the third member of the Apollo 11 mission. It includes authentic NASA audio from the mission and a text based on Collins' own words.
Ballad of Mary Anning (2017)- for women's choir & piano with optional alto saxophone (gr. 3)
Black is a Cat (2017)- for choir and chamber ensemble (gr. 3)
This SATB* choir piece highlights key figures in African-American history, in particular musicians (a play on the jazz slang term "cat"). My hope is that the piece will spark conversations about these important figures among students, teachers, and audience members. All proceeds from sheet music sales for this song go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
