I just got word that my “Water Lilies” will be premiering tonight at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. A student there named Kaedron Hall contacted me about performing one of my pieces in his conducting recital. He expressed interest in performing “Water Lilies” and “Desert Pools.” In the end, only “Water Lilies” made it to the program (understandably, both are tough as nails).
When I first got a message from Kaedron, I wasn’t sure if it was something I should believe or if Kaedron was someone that I should trust with my piece that wasn’t published or ever performed. That changed when I went to the Morehouse College website and saw what kind of an institution it was. When I saw that they emphasize character, integrity, and other characteristics of great leaders I stopped worrying.
It will be tonight at 8 PM in the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center, if you’re in the area, you should go.
Good luck Kaedron!
