Stabat Mater

March 29 & 30 at the American Cathedral of Paris. I’m over-the-moon excited to have written this 45-minute work for my friends The Paris Choral Society and The American Cathedral Choir and Youth Choir. Ironically, the director of these groups, Zach Ullery, is a Kentucky native and a graduate of the University of Kentucky. But we never met in the states. Through mutual friends we became acquainted through social media and immediately began to brainstorm about a collaboration. And now it’s happening. The piece is scored for the three combined choirs (each getting a little of their own limelight), strings, 3 trombones and clarinet. I’ll be in Paris the last two weeks in January to attend a few rehearsals, then back for the month of March. If you’re traveling somewhere close by, please let me know!
