So, the latest arrows shot (not all that hopefully) into the air:

So, notification for this call should be 15 Sep.  A bit amusingly, then, I am poised for rejection letters in mid-July, mid-August, and now mid-September.  Let's see just how robust my optimism should prove . . . .

Pay attention everyone!  Three minutes of one musical gem after another!  Karl is the American Liadov of miniatures!  Pass this music onward to your friends!

With the advantage that Karl does NOT suffer from  Liadov's infamous Oblomovian lassitude!   0:)

When I was submitting the piece for the 2017 Vibrant Vibes call, they require streaming audio, which is why I had MIDI of the full piece from which I might derive that targeted excerpt.  A number of the episodes are not well represented by the MIDI, however:

If we had a society with thinking ears, this piece and many others in the HenningMusick catalog would already be recorded!

I do like it (the chorale), and I am having fun with it (the Intermezzo):

The message from Rapido! has come in, and the game is afoot:  a piece from 4'-6' for three single-line instruments; “a dance movement or movements.”

Now, to check to make sure my 3-ring binder has plenty of blank MS. paper . . . .

The announcement for this contest is expected 15 August, so in a shade under three weeks' time.

And, some chit-chat about Ear Buds.

So, we may get that rejection letter earlier rather than later!

The decision must likely still be a process;  I spoke again with the staff at ACO, and the hope (not a certainty) is that a decision may be announced next week.  Who knows?  Ear Buds may still stand a chance.

I slept on't, to make certain, but yes, Intermezzo III is done:

(A few very minor layout adjustments to be made to clean up the score.  And I have a mad repurposing idea.)
