    I’ve been working with Ethan Chessin and the good young people of Camas High School in Camas, Washington, long-distance from Prague via Skype. Two of Camas High School’s choirs will be premiering two commissioned pieces I wrote specifically for them, this Saturday at the First Congregational Church in downtown Portland, Oregon (USA). If you’d like to attend, the address isĀ 1126 SW Park Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97205 and the concert starts at 7pm. The concert is part of a project called Joined Forces, in which composers were commissioned to write unusual pieces for high school choir. I wrote one piece about teenage female aggression called “Braid Your Hair Tight” specifically for the Treble Ensemble (women’s choir), and another SATB piece about the Sedlec Ossuary outside of Kutna Hora, Czech Republic called “Church of Bones”. Listen to an NPR story about the project here:
