Big Requiem News!!!

just heard from my collaborator, composer Jeff Ryan, that the CBC is going to broadcast Afghanistan: Requiem for a Generation. watch this space for more details.

Jeff just spent the weekend workshopping the choral pieces with the children and the adult choirs, and says they are tremendous. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. will my words stand up to Jeff’s music?!? there are things I’d like to change, but alas, as I’m learning, when one collaborates with such a huge ensemble, authority becomes a collective. I just wound the clock, now the clock has a sense of time and destiny of its own!

well done Jeff, well done Cantare Children’s Choir and the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus, and directors.
