UPDATE: The Whitworth Symphony Orchestra gave a fabulous premier of the work on November 19, 2019. Check it out here!
An exciting opportunity presented itself to me in the form of a commission for a new composition. This commission is particularly exciting because it comes from Dr. Philip Baldwin at alma mater, Whitworth University. Dr. Baldwin asked for a piece that features a narrator telling a children's story, while being accompanied by orchestral music. Laura E. Richards' The Golden Windows is the story we chose. It's an excellent story that is nearly begging to be told with musical accompaniment. Once the composition is finished and the performance is complete, I will post a recording of it right here. This is becoming a very exciting project!
