My newest composition for the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Black & Alive, premieres this Saturday, November 14th, at 7:30pm EST, 4:30pm PST. This work, which I'm dedicating to my mom, has been months in the making, so I hope you'll consider listening to it. Tickets for this Saturday's live-streamed concert can be purchased here. My friend, the amazing young African American soprano Chelsea Fingal DeSouza, will also be performing Mahler's Symphony no. 4 with the orchestra on the program. It's going to be a wonderful night of music!
While live-stream access to the concert on the 14th is for subscribers only, your donation of 25$ or more to the ASO gives you access to the concert beginning on Friday, November 20th. They've been wonderful creative partners in this challenging time, so I hope you'll show the ASO some love with your donation today!
The Times Union of Albany wrote up a nice profile about the piece and some of my musical thoughts. Check it out here!
All my best to all of you!
