This month marks the start of a new recording project. I'm now writing new material to be recorded in the summer and released by the end of the year. Stay tuned.
I've enjoyed revisiting "Concertato on "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today,'" originally commissioned by Tripp Morris for Spanish Fort United Methodist Chruch. He requested that I rescore it for full orchestra (from the mixed chorus, brass quintet, percussion, and organ). That premieres on Easter Sunday. In the new version I've made adjustments and created what I feel is a better composition. I'm also excited about another project: "Over Yonder's Ocean" (mixed chorus, chamber orch.) based on original Murrells Inlet spirituals. This work was performed in 2012 (Carolina Master Chorale, Tim Koch, condcutor). I'm taking the opportuinity to edit, rescore (adding more jazz-based improvisational components) and adjust the video that accompanies the live performance. This will premiere on March 30 at Weelwright Auditorium, Coastal Carolina University.
