Crazy Jane Concert a Success

I think last night’s Crazy Jane concert was our best one yet. Thanks to all the performers, who who played beautifully and to my fellow Crazy Jane composers who put in the work of organizing the concert!CJ 2015 program cover 8.5x11

Crazy Jane Concert Next Month

I’m looking forward to next month’s concert, Crazy Jane Prevails, featuring music by women composers from the Pacific Northwest.  The first rehearsal of my piece, “Fairy Bells and the Calypso Orchid” was on Monday and it went very well.

Coming next week:  new music by Oregon composers, including my song “Howl: Etiquette for Artists and Other Social Misfits”, for soprano voice, alto saxophone and harp.

“Howl” Rehearsal

Yesterday I had my first chance to hear a rehearsal of my song “Howl” for soprano voice, alto saxophone and harp, which will be on the upcoming concert, Cascadia Ventures Forth.  I got to hear some cool sounds the harp and saxophone can make, that will be incorporated into the piece.  Looking forward to the concert!
