Greetings! I am delighted to invite you to the World Premiere of my newest composition, River and Tree.
The piece was sung as a virtual choir project by singers from my two ensembles, Arcadian Chorale (NJ) and Richmond Choral Society (NYC), with piano accompaniment and audio editing by Ruslan Odintsov, and video editing by Linnet Westerwick.
I wrote this piece last spring on a delightful text by American poet Margaret Sangster. It celebrates the idea that, once we take the time to connect with another individual, even someone who on the surface seems quite different from ourselves, we may be surprised by our commonalities and mutual regard.
River and Tree is set to premiere on YouTube on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 8 PM EDT.
Here is the YouTube link for River and Tree: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMJiyeAJFeU
There will be a live chat during the premiere.
Note that, after the premiere, the video will become a regular public video on Arcadian Chorale’s YouTube channel.

Hoping you will tune in for the World Premiere, and that you will enjoy my music!
