Need a place to celebrate and reflect upon the Christmas Story this Christmas Season, complete with community carol-singing and candle-lighting? Come join us at His Way Community Church in Santa Clarita (CA), December 24th, 5pm-6pm!
This year’s Christmas Eve Service will include a music trio of piano, violin and cello playing some popular Christmas Carols, a Christmas story reading and a candlelight singing of Silent Night.
All music will be specially composed and arranged by Sarah, and will be performed by Sarah on violin, Taylor Arnone on cello, and Mike Jung on piano.
During our exciting Composition Studio Recital TOMORROW – Thursday, Dec 11 @ 4pm-5pm – I will be debuting movements 1 and 3 from my 2007 concerto for 6-string electric violin, LEVIATHAN OF THE ANCIENT DEEP.
I have finished reworking the digital orchestral background for these two outer movements (and even touched up a few things in the writing itself, since it’s been 7 years since it was first written!!), and I will be performing the solo to this digital accompaniment on my dragon-fiddle, Aisling. LIVE!
You won’t want to miss this event of beautiful, creative, and stirring new music from the students at The Master’s College – and don’t miss this partial debut of the LEVIATHAN CONCERTO!!!!
A madrigal, popular in the Renaissance and early Baroque, may be defined as a secular, polyphonic partsong, a through-composed work attempting to express the emotion contained within each line of a poem on which it is based. Loosely, a madrigal may be thought of as a linear journey across pallets of color and emotional soundscapes, and this is precisely what Wallin Huff’s 2014 so-titled work for orchestra aims to do.
I feel like a proud Mama! I always get so giddy when a substantial new work like this is complete. I just love it!
Now… I need to polish up the look and formatting of the score and parts… Just in time for the mid-December deadline of a few “Call for Scores” I wrote this for… Keep your fingers crossed for me! And… if you happen to play with an orchestra you think would enjoy playing this work, let me know!
I feel like my new work, “Madrigal, for Orchestra,” is finally coming along nicely, headed in a clearer direction now. I’m so excited about it! Enjoy this brief sneak peek of the opening 5:30 minutes…. Hope to be officially finished with it within the next few weeks; I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!
Now on CD Baby, iTunes, and very soon at other online retailers, you can purchase your own copy of my OST for Jorge Armenteros’ novel, The Book of I!
…the soundtrack composed by Sarah Wallin Huff stands out as both a powerful album, taking its listener on an emotional journey of beauty, despair, and hope, as well as a fascinating study of the composer’s visceral and intellectual connection to the source material…the album is a stunning collection of gorgeous, orchestral selections comprised mostly of string instruments that are, at times, vividly haunting but always entirely engrossing. (Barbra Dillon)
Out today is Jorge Armenteros‘ striking novel, “The Book of I,” as well as artwork by Liselott Johnsson. Unfortunately, there was a slight delay in the release of my accompanying OST, but the album will be available shortly, I promise – within the coming week. So keep your eyes and ears out for it!
…the soundtrack composed by Sarah Wallin Huff stands out as both a powerful album, taking its listener on an emotional journey of beauty, despair, and hope, as well as a fascinating study of the composer’s visceral and intellectual connection to the source material. Featuring the stellar work of musicians Darrell Peries, Caleb Barnes, Cathy Alonzo, Jenna Ford, Lainey Elizabeth White, Brett Bird, Jonatas Mostacato, Ayla Draper, and [Wallin] Huff herself, the album is a stunning collection of gorgeous, orchestral selections comprised mostly of string instruments that are, at times, vividly haunting but always entirely engrossing. [Wallin] Huff, who previously released her own album, Soul of the Machine, earlier this year, clearly has a passion and a gift for sharing every ounce of her mind, body, and soul with the listener, as if providing a warm invitation for the listener to share the same in response.
