Jocelyn Hagen is composing an extended secular work (3-4 movement, around 15 minutes) for The Women’s Chorus of Dallas and string quartet.
Conductor Melinda Imthurn and I have selected winter-themed poetry by Minnesota poet Julia Klatt Singer, a regular collaborator of mine, and the piece will be premiered in December, 2015, in Texas. (I set four of Julia’s poems in my most recent song cycle Kiss, and her poem “how to live in the modern world” inspired soft blink of amber light, premiered last June by the Houston Chamber Choir.)
