MUSIC IS - WORLD PREMIERE FOR CHOIR, PARK PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, STREATOR, IL, TUESDAY, June 13, 7 pm 

I am very grateful that Kate Tombaugh asked me to write a piece for the inaugural year of the poco a poco Summer Music Fest in our hometown of Streator, Illinois.  Her indomitable spirit and enthusiasm have been an inspiration, as has the wonderful text that she commissioned from Joshua McGuire.  It has so many layers and interconnections, and yet it is so direct and powerful.  Musical ideas flowed forth from me in response.

Both a culinary journey and demonstration on how to make a classic French chocolate cake, you will not want to miss this Regional Premiere!

concert:nova builds on the culinary-opera theme by starting the production off with Bernstein's Bonne Cuisine, Ellen Ruth Harrison's Salad Bar, and other food inspired pieces.
