I am thinking a pair of dances:

1. Boston Harbor Heave-Ho (Tea Party Dance) – 4'
2. Revere’s Midnight Reel (War Dance) – 1'30

Now, as to the Rapido! competition . . . semi-finalist works are to be performed in the Fall of 2018, so I suppose that there, too, the decision must be fairly soon after the submission deadline.


There are five $500 prizes (four regional semi-finalists, and an "audience's favorite" prize);  a single national winner is subsequently selected, who will be awarded a orchestral commission to be played by the Atlanta Symphony.


Who knows?  If somebody still has a chance, it must be you . . . .

Best of luck to you!

The Compositions Are In!  We're excited! The 2018 Rapido! Composition Contest is off to a great start!

During the last 14 days, hundreds of composers coast-to-coast have been simultaneously, and perhaps feverishly, composing and creating new works for chamber ensemble. We thank all the composers nationwide who participated in the Contest!

Now that all the entries have been submitted, we begin the work of blind judging where teams of musicians and composers study the scores, listen to MP3s, and read through the top contenders.

Next up – the announcement on August 15th of the 12 Semi-Finalist composers whose music will be performed in live competition concerts this fall.

Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, & Detroit get ready!

What is next?

The entries from each Region will be put through a blind judging process to select the 3 Regional Semi-Finalists. Those 3 will move on to compete in a Regional Semi-Finals performance with live judges. One Finalist from each region will move on to compete in the National Finals in Atlanta, GA on January 20, 2019. And new this year - an additional Finalist will be selected to join them!

Regional Breakdown by States:

Atlanta Chamber Players - Southeast Region:
AL, FL, GA, KY, MS, NC, SC, TN, VA, WV, MD, DE, Wash DC

Boston Musica Viva - Northeast Region:
CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT

Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings - Northwest Region:
AK, IA, ID, IL, IN, MI, MN, MT, ND, OH, OR, SD, WA, WI, WY

Voices of Change – Southwest Region:
AR, AZ, CA, CO, HI, KS, LA, MO, NE, NM, NV, OK, TX, UT

Finished the cl/org Voluntary on “Beautiful Savior.”  In principle, it is a piece I could play with any number of folks here in the Boston area, and not only at HTUMC.

Here's a "Before and After":  I made a start on It Might Happen Today, on Tuesday, but as I mulled, I felt the rhythmic profile of the ostinato was too flat.  I sketched my changes yesterday, and this morning I find they are just the thing.

An old virtual acquaintance of mine, organist David Bohn, has relatively recently become taken with the clavichord.  Last year, he put out a call for scores via Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame.  He periodically reached out to me, to make sure I had not forgotten the deadline.  I finally got around to writing the piece, basically while I was in DC for An Evening With the Firesign Theatre—Or What's Left of It at the LOC.  Recording the 15-Mins pieces got entangled with a larger recording endeavor, and he has now "released" (as it were) my quirky, short piece:

Thanks, Ron!

Well, I think I may have finished the new men's choir piece for Triad.  I'll let it "cure" overnight, see if I find anything in the morning which I feel wants repair . . . .
