on the horizonby Jason McChristian on 11/19/16
The premiere of A Fanfare for New Horizons was a wonderful success. The work was performed at the Quinlan Center in Cupertino, CA on Sunday, November 13. I conducted the Cupertino Symphonic Band while the soloists consisted of our fantastic horn section. The horn players (six) all played their hearts out and the audience enjoyed the piece; some of them saying it was their favorite work on the program.
Several of my pieces have been purchased this month from JWPepper. I’m not entirely sure why the immediate surge of interest, but I did send out some “cold” messages to connections on LinkedIn informing them about my work.
The Atlanta Concert Band in Georgia will perform Flicker and Flare, for Handbells and Concert Band, in December. The conductor tells me that the performance will streamed. More info to follow.
