School is finally out here at SC, and now that task of looking for summer work is in full swing. I’ve been looking around at some interesting jobs, but really, I’d rather be writing music for your choir.
I’ve been commissioned before by the BYU Singers, BYU Men’s Chorus, and the Chancel Choir of St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church in Plano, Texas. I’ve loved working on each of these ensembles and these recipients have been very pleased with the resulting pieces. I’ve been able to write more complicated works that are challenging (in a good way) as well as pieces that are accessible for less-experienced singers. By the way, these four commissions were all delivered earlier than their proposed date of delivery.
These commissioned pieces include:
“I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go”
“Press Forward, Saints,”
and “The Pure River Flows”
By the way, you don’t have to direct a choir in order to commission a new piece of music. There are plenty of cases of people commissioning new music as a birthday present or anniversary gift for a loved one or spouse. I can then get it recorded with the gracious help of the USC Chamber Singers. It’s a one of a kind gift that no one else has. Now that’s romantic.
So, if you are in need of any new music, feel free to contact me and we can get a conversation started.
