Light and Wind
Written for and performed by the Shenandoah Conservatory Choir;
Dr. Scott Allen Jarrett, conductor
Light and Wind was written at the request for a "choral fanfare." As a brass player, this struck me as a kind of conundrum; choirs don't really do fanfares. So, I considered what the purpose of this piece really is -- to welcome a group of people to a new place. In that context, there's no need for a fanfare to be loud and fast. It just needs to feel like...home.
