Whether you need an anthem for a specific text or event at your church, a special concert piece, a work to commemorate a life, or just want to be a part of the creative process, you can commission a work from a living composer. It not only gives you a chance to have a piece written specifically for your needs, but also makes you a supporter of new artistic endeavors. If you are interested in having me write a piece for your ensemble, please feel free to contact me so that we can talk about your needs. You can suggest a text or a scripture for me to set, or a theme that you would like me to explore in a newly composed text.
A good basic read on commissioning a composer can be found here. I want to collaborate with you and work within your budget, so please feel free to contact me with your needs and parameters. Some examples of pieces I have written for ensembles are as follows:
"Light of the World," for the Fine Arts Series at Littleton UMC, Littleton, CO
"Patapan," for the Taylor Festival Choir (Charleston, SC) for their CD Sing We Now of Christmas
"The Waiting," for the Taylor Festival Choir's Ireland Tour
"Hope is the Thing with Feathers," for choirs (middle school) at Harrison Township School District, NJ.
"Covenant Prayer," (in process) for Holy Covenant UMC in Carrollton, TX
