Now available for purchase – “The Lesson of the Lark,” written as a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of Women’s Voting Right. This new multi-movement concert work composed for narrator, soprano and mezzo-soprano soloists, and chorus, contains a powerful message calling for gender equity. The work takes its inspiration from the language of Jazz – including elements of Swing, Blues, Bossa Nova, Gospel, Salsa, and improvisation.
The piece is composed for both SATB and SSA choral ensembles. (SATB and SSA versions may be combined for a collaborative performance.) All choral parts are written with accessibility in mind – with generous use of unison lines, canonic phrases, and triadic harmonies.
Accompaniment options include Jazz Orchestra (original version), Jazz Chamber Ensemble (available soon), Jazz Quartet, and Solo Piano.
