Kia ora e hoa mā,
While getting underway with my masters degree over the past month I wrote a piece for a call for scores put out by the Auckland University Student Choir. The brief was to compose a piece for mixed choir, piano and string orchestra, with a duration of 3-5 minutes in length, with no divisi in the choral parts, and with the text in English.
I was stoked to hear that my work, lady of the river, was selected to be performed in their end-of-year concert this October along with one other submitted piece. I had a lot of fun writing the piece and it was a great way to get back into the composition space after a bit of a hiatus over the past year or so. A positive start to my masters journey and I’m really looking forward to hearing it performed!
Hope to share a recording with you soon.
Update: Unfortunately due to the Covid lockdown in Auckland the concert planned for October was cancelled :( Fingers crossed that it will be able to take place in 2021 instead.
