Wind of Many Voices

It’s finally here, the premiere of my major work for the South Dakota Symphony, Wind of Many Voices.  It responds to my travels and adventures all over the state, which have continued apace since I finished the piece in December.  Most recently, I’ve been driving all over both Dakotas hunting down my ancestors’ homes, in the dead of winter.  I’ve experienced the raw power of the traditional Lakota drum and singers, arranging music for the orchestra to play to accompany them (the only time the orchestra has gotten drowned out by the voices).  And I’ve heard, all in one performance, the music of the 20 teenaged composers I’ve worked with, from three reservations and two cities, writing from the heart.  Now, I give back from my own heart.  March 23!
