I'm thrilled to share that Magnolia Star will be performed by the Alabama Winds at this year's Midwest Clinic in Chicago on December 20th at 12:00pm. The ensemble is directed by Randall Coleman. It's an honor to have my work included at the conference, and I look forward to working with the Alabama Winds and seeing many friends and colleagues there!
This week is the fantastic Midwest Clinic in Chicago - the largest gathering of wind and orchestra conductors, composers, ensembles, etc. Unfortunately I won't be there, and I'm sure I will be missing some great performances, talks, colleagues, and friends! I plan to be there next year, and who knows... if I'm lucky enough maybe I will have a piece performed! In honor of Midwest week, I'm posting this video from the 2009 Midwest Clinic featuring the one-and-only Eastman Wind Ensemble performing Mark Scatterday's transcription of Tumbao from Roberto Sierra's Symphony No. 3. Enjoy!
