Come see the premiere of my new orchestral piece
“Joan of Arc – The End, The Beginning”
(just northwest of Harbor and Lincoln intersection)
The wonderful choir and soloists of St. Boniface Church together with three excellent high school choirs, Foothill, JSerra, and Corona Del Sol from Arizona, will combine 200 singers with a professional orchestra to present the full orchestral version of Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem,” conducted by Brian Dehn, Director of Music at St. Boniface Catholic Church. Each choir will also present a few selections on their own.
In addition, my new composition, “Joan of Arc – The End, The Beginning,” for orchestra and soprano soloist, will be presented in its premier performance. I wrote this piece especially for this concert and am thrilled to be able to conduct the fine musicians we will have that evening.
Below is a video to introduce you to the piece. It is a computer rendition of the piece with the printed score for you to follow. May I suggest you read the notes I wrote to get a complete overview of the thoughts behind the piece.
Suggested donation for tickets for this concert is $10 for seniors and students; $15 general. Buy at the door or church office. And come early to the church for better parking.
Bring family, a friend, a music student or someone who doesn’t get out much. You might be surprised whom you know that knows of Fauré’s Requiem and would love to hear a special performance. There is something special about seeing students work with adults in a mature way. And if you like the computer version of “Joan of Arc” above, (my new piece) wait till you hear the excitement and nuance of our full orchestra in St. Boniface’s large sanctuary!

I do appreciate the time and energy it takes to get to a concert. Imagine the time and energy to plan, rehearse and, oh yeah, write music for a concert!
