New Success in 2016 – Oak Creek Percussion Ensemble and UWM Youth Percussion Ensemble
Man, it has been a while! I want to write a quick post to make sure I get rid of that weird Chuck Norris post.. haha – sharing that was on my bucket list… please go back and enjoy it!
This year has been very fun and busy so far and one thing that popped up is Oak Creek Percussion Ensemble rocking out a new work called “Enter Stella’s World” – Oak Creek went to Solo & Ensemble and earned the highest rating possible, making it possible for them to play again in State Competition! Check out the video of the performance below! 🙂
Beyond that wonderful experience, I also had the honor of having the UWM Youth Percussion Ensemble play one of my works! This work was “Spaced In,” originally written for a percussion ensemble from Chehalis, WA. This time the work was expanded from a six person group to a nontet of percussionists. (nine players!) These players did a world premiere of this version of the work. They are currently working on one that was written for them! They did a fabulous job and it is a pleasure to work with that group. 🙂
Looking forward, as always, to what the future will bring with both these groups as well as other collaborations! 🙂 Bye for now!
