I’m excited to be traveling to Bolingbrook, IL May 12-15 to hear the midwestern premiere of Spring Quiet by the Bolingbrook High School singers, under the direction of Lawrence Fisher. This follows the March world premiere of the piece in Denver by the First Universalist Singers, directed by John Hubert.
Spring Quiet is the second of four pieces I’m writing for the First Universalist Singers–one on each season. The winter piece is Wake, O Earth (SATB/English Horn version). The summer and fall pieces are forthcoming. This has been an immensely gratifying project, as I love writing for musicians whom I know. Also, it’s been great to sing in the premieres. Particularly helpful in making revisions, since I’m part of the rehearsal process.
