The premiere of my Overture to the American Songbook. Something closer to an arrangement than a composition in the truest sense, the piece was commissioned from me last year to close “Americana,” the finale concert of this season for BrightMusic. BrightMusic is the best chamber music organization going on in this part of the country, and it was a joy to work with them again.
Unfortunately, the only picture from this event is this one of me with my good friend and uber-clarinetist Chad Burrow apparently trying to conduct each other, or otherwise engage in some kind of effeminate dance. So, event success, picture fail.
