High School Choral Commission (premieres in 2015)0December 8th, 2014Uncategorized
So awhile back, Felix Obelix was commissioned to write some music for high school choir. I am lucky to be working with Camas High School (Camas, Oregon), and their great director, Ethan Chessin. I Skyped from Prague with the choirs there in November and had a blast talking with them. I’m currently working on a piece for mixed choir and another for women’s choir and first readings are slated to happen in January 2015. This is another new adventure for Felix Obelix, but the process of writing songs for these voices and these ages is proving to be really exciting and challenging. I can’t wait to hear what it sounds like! Lots of work for me this December, but absolutely worth it. What will Felix Obelix lyrics sound like coming out of the mouths of talented Oregonian teenagers? Stay tuned – if all goes according to plan, the pieces will be premiered in April of next year!
