My composition 'Ghadan' (Tomorrow) , a movement from my Hakawaty (Storyteller) Suite for Orchestra, was performed by the Berlin based Friedenauer Kammerensemble and the Spanish Orquesta Ritornello during two concerts on July 29th and July 30th. The concert was conducted by the wonderful Maestro Mariano Domingo.
Spelling Semitic, a work for women's choir that I composed based on a poem by Zsuzsanna Ardó, had its World Premiere on July 5th, 2017. The wonderful NC Governor's School East 2017 choir gave two impressive performances at the Jones Chapel (Meredith College Campus) in Raleigh NC, beautifully conducted by Gwen Hall.
The concert was preceded by a lecture I gave on July 3rd to around 350 youth attending NC Governor's School, and a workshop/ masterclass on July 4th.
