"Unfinished Melodies" a CCMC Collaboration
Date: May 14, 2014
A CCMC Collaboration has lead to the premier of "Unfinished Melodies" by the Washington Park High School Concert Choir in Racine, WI. Robert Ross, Linda Marcus and I, with help from Ken Matejka wrote a piece in memory of those lost in the Newtown tragedy. I asked my music teaching colleagues if any would consider performing it and Heather Lopp who followed me as the Choir Director at WPHS excitedly took it on. My daughter has sung in her program for four years and sang the descant at the premier.
It was an excellent experience all around and our team is very proud of the results. Many people in the audience expressed their gratitude for the piece and many were visibly moved by the music and text.
Have a listen and share your thoughts about it.
