Afghanistan: Requiem for a Generation coming to Vancouver January 27, 2017!!!

Well they always say you’re never a hero in your home town. Well I just found out that Jeffrey Ryan and my Afghanistan: Requiem for a Generation is coming to the Orpheum on January 27, 2017 as part of the New Music Festival!!!! This major work for symphony, adult and children choruses, and four stellar soloists was commissioned by the Calgary Philharmonic in 2012 and produced by One Yellow Rabbit and supported by the Banff Centre. It was an SRO audience of 1700 as seen in this video. The work is based on my witness to 1PPCLI and Task Force 3-09 on their road to war and back again in 2008-2010.

I’m so pleased and excited that it is coming to my home town Vancouver. I’ve never had my work produced in Vancouver, nor have I given any major readings or lectures in my home town. A warning: tickets sold out very quickly for the CPO production so do purchase your tix soon. Watch this space for further details about the requiem coming to two other major Canadian cities!
