Check out the awesome little concert I’ll be doing with pianist, Lydia Wu, Friday night, Jan 5, 2018! We’re so looking forward to playing this charming music for you… Featuring musical sweets from Fauré, Elgar, Amy Beach…and even Yours Truly… ?
I’m super excited to have finally organized my thoughts regarding the unifying elements of my upcoming album into an effective album description.
“The word Paroketh (PRKTh) refers to the Four Elements: Peh (Water), Resh (Air), Kaph (Fire), and Tau (Earth). It is the Veil of the Temple before the Holy of Holies… a veil made up of the four classical elements of the human body” (Dan Sewell Ward, Feb 2007). In the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, the “Veil of Paroketh” lies between the middle branches of intention, or consciousness, and the lowest branches of our physical reality. Everything “above” Paroketh’s Veil emerges from our conscious decisions and beyond… from the past stories and experiences that help shape our intentions to act as we choose in the world.
A vintage aura of story and myth envelops this intimate collection of chamber music. For example, “Falada” — Portuguese for “speaking” or “discourse” — brings to mind the role storytellers of old played in their communities, passing down vital history and life lessons to the young. “Weeping Willow” recalls emotional whirlwinds of despair, hope, and passion — emotions common to us all. “Forgotten Melody” seeks deep within the soul to uncover that which was once hidden. And the three diverse works — “Of Roses and Lilies,” “Aradia, La Bella Pellegrina,” and “The Oracle” — tell the stories of their respective characters: ancient tales that continue to impact our modern culture.
May we embrace our past stories to uncover the commonality inherent to all humanity.

…Ask performers within your network if they might be interested in playing at the concert you’re setting up… For clarity, and because it is good practice, you should draw up a written agreement… Your next challenge is to find a venue for your project… Your work is 30 min in duration, which is not enough for a full concert, so you get to select other compositions to complement your own work and complete the programme. Skillful curating is an art form in itself… Any performance is an achievement, so make the most of it!…
Lots more details are available at the article. Get your work out there, and enjoy the ride! 🙂
I love creating musical experiences that “guide the listener through an unfolding story.” I love creating and being a part of musical experiences that have “a rich, artistic depth that encourages spiritual, mental, and emotional exploration of the human condition.”
I am always excited to share my love of music with you, and I am honored to serve you any way that I can. 🙂
Just saw the video from Cal Poly Pomona Music Sax Choir’s performance of my arrangement of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, under the direction of Lori Rosenbauer Huff! Soooo amazing! They made it sound soooo great!!!
I’m pretty sure I’ll be making an arrangement from my arrangement for string quartet and other groups soon… ? Want the Music? Get it here!
