Brass Modality (brass choir, medium)– Ideal for contest or for a concert opener, this piece features the brass section in a dark, modal melody turning into a faster, exciting section. Fun to perform and full of educational opportunities.
Carol of the Bells (percussion ensemble, medium) – This very popular melody is expanded with very creative percussion writing. A big hit for holiday concerts.
oh beautiful (chamber version) – This subtle and moving work calls for a unison choir over a small chamber group. After setting a stark and solemn mood on the piano, fragments of the tune America start form into a cohesive melody. Oh, Beautiful is ideal for an introspective moment in any performance. I sat at the piano one morning and this came to me; it was the day after 9/11. It reminded me that no matter how sad or ugly our country can be at times, it is still Beautiful.
