Tone Poem

Added some more to the beginning of my tone poem.  I also realized as I listended to Mozart's Kyrie from Missa in C Minor, as well as the Kyrie from the Requeim Mass and a few other fugal passages that I'd like to include a fugal section in this to portray some 'mixed up anguish' is the best way to describe it.

Hobbs Middle School in Shelley

Got to go down to Shelley and play with Mrs. Loveland's orchestra from Hobbs Middle School.  Way fun!  I enjoyed hearing them play a composition of mine, and it was an enjoyable experience for me.  Hope to do it again sometime!

Middle School Visit and Waltz to be Performed

Got to go to Hobbs Middle School in Shelley last Thursday, 15 March 2012.  I got into the classroom and a couple of the kids said:  "You're here!" in quavering, excited voices.  It was the cutest thing ever, and made me feel great!  Great group of kids, and they did a great job with all of their music.  Mrs. Loveland was great about everything, and has a great class!

This Thursday, 22 March, I get to go to Shelley High School and perform with the Hobbs Middle School as they premier my composition for string orchestra, "Waltz."  It'll be a lot of fun, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my music with the community and to help out a school.
