Grant Park Music Festival Chorus Commission – premiering July 18 and 22, 2019

I am thrilled to announce that I have been commissioned to write an a cappella chorus piece for The Grant Park Musical Festival Chorus with director Christopher Bell. The work will premiere July 18,2019 at the Columbus Park Refectory and will be repeated on July 22 at the South Shore Cultural Center in Chicago, IL.

The commission celebrates the 20th anniversary of Grant Park’s artistic director and conductor Carlos Kalmar, and I chose to set the exquisite poem “Hands,” by American poet Robinson Jeffers (1887-1962).
