Santiago Veros || Choral Composer
There are only 5 slots available for the consortium. It is a piece that you really want to have in your repertoire because it has a great story behind it. This collaboration is really significant.
On May 14, 2020 my dog named Ruperto passed away and that same day I wrote a poem for him in an Instagram post. I felt that he had already realized all of his dreams and achieved all of his goals (be happy). He really had a great life and made everyone around him happy. We exchange love and live great adventures together. He always traveled with me everywhere and was able to see mountains and seas.
Something in that poem caught the attention of Anthony Silvestri who suggested that I make it a choral work. “You must use that poem” he said to me. I felt that it was not important, that it was very intimate material and that in the end no one was going to identify with my relationship with my dog. Why would someone do it? as a good friend that he is, a few weeks later, Anthony approached me with a version of the poem. As we all know, this version is far superior to my original poem. Anthony is simply a living legend who performs miracles with words. I wrote a minute of music and then I began to solve commissions for pieces. That’s why I had to put aside the idea of finishing writing this piece. The work was frozen and today I feel like I want to pay homage to that memory. To unconditional love, to live with joy and do everything possible so that when the last day comes, only good memories remain.
I would like you to consider being part of this consortium. In this way, you will be able to acquire a work written with the heart in hand. You will be able to listen to the sounds of the soul turned into music and you will also have a great story to tell. Do you want to take a look at the work and listen to the first minute already written?
