You may remember IOC as the choir that premiered my piece O Child in 2018. I was so delighted to get a piece on their program, as I had been to several of their concerts and consider them one of the best choirs in the SF Bay Area—not just the bestly-named chorus in the Bay Area. (They take their name from the official paint color of the Golden Gate Bridge, FYI.)
So you can imagine how happy I am to have the opportunity to work very closely with them this year. The residency will have two parts:
1. IOC will perform my piece A Prayer in Spring on their June program.
2. I will compose a new piece, text TBD, for their fall concerts.
Please save one of these dates (or both, go nuts) for the June concerts:
Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 7:30 PM, East Bay
Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 7:30 PM, San Francisco
Exact locations TBA—I’ll let you know as soon as I know. I’ll be attending the June 6 concert (but will have to miss the June 20 concert, alas).
More to come!
