I just wrapped up a couple of really exciting collaborations on some choral pieces, one with a local lyricist, and one with a famous author. The collaboration with the famous author was across time and space, and we’ve never actually met (aside from brief twitter conversations). But his assistant said it was okay, and that’s all that matters.
The local lyricist/poet’s name is Danielle King and we’ve put together a very exciting piece for all three Soundings Studio Choirs (Women’s Ensemble, High School Choir, Middle School Choir) plus guitar and harp. Danielle did a great job on the text, and I’ll be announcing the title tomorrow. (Here it is!)
Unfortunately, while I was hoping the collaboration with the famous author would be premiering at a concert this winter, it looks like it’s going to have to wait until the Spring. But it’s okay, I think it’s more of Spring piece anyway.
