The students of Concordia Conservatory's chamber music program will premiere a new song cycle of mine commissioned by the Conservatory with support from the ASCAP Foundation's Charles Kingsford Fund. The cycle includes ten song settings of poems by Karla Kuskin, Mary Britton Miller, Deborah Chandra, Carl Sandburg, Douglas Evans and Charlie Sohne. The texts weave a story of discovery and whimsy in the day of the life of a child: waking up, going to school, daydreaming, playing, and saying good night. Each instrumental and vocal part was tailored to the level of the student who will perform it, making the experience challenging, achievable, and fun!
