Excited to have one of my newest compositions premiered on December 3, 2015 by the University of Houston Moores School of Music Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Franz Krager.
The piece is entitled Triple Concerto and is written for full symphony orchestra, big band, and three trumpet soloists. This is a 15′ through-composed work. Thanks to Noe Marmolejo for acting as liaison to help make this happen.
Originally the piece was going to be premiered back in May 2015 featuring Mark Hughes (Houston Symphony), Chris Martin (Chicago Symphony), and the great trumpeter from Blood, Sweat, and Tears, Lew Soloff. However, due in part to the untimely passing of Soloff, the premiere was pushed back to December.
This work definitely represents a big part of my writing efforts this past year and any friends in Houston in early December – would LOVE to see you at the premiere.
