Revisiting this analysis makes me keen to listen to the piece again, myself.

Just a note that the pianist in the ensemble has acknowledged receipt of the score with a nice message. Here's hoping the soprano is fearless!

The soprano, Rose Hegele, wrote today with a vibrato question:  I’m currently using light vibrato throughout to ensure tuning, but am using straight tone on faster notes to ensure that the text can be heard. Is this okay?

I replied: That is perfect. At the risk of opening Pandora's box, how are you finding the piece?

Rose responded: I am enjoying the piece, and I appreciate how well you support the voice, particularly your use of imitation and having different instruments in unison with the voice at different times. I also enjoy the contrast between the more outgoing and contemplative sections of Kerouac's choruses; you highlight those beautifully!

I've learnt that the concert will be recorded.

Typically, the Lowell Chamber Orchestra concerts are livestreamed via Facebook. It is unclear to me whether this will actually be the case tonight. But if so, here is their page on Facebook.

Neat Karel!  Any ideas as to when it will be roughly in terms of the programming?

Well, it's almost time, so a heads up to all of you who are interested.  I'll try and see whether or not I can watch it on the Facebook link.  :)

AARGH!

I went to the FaceBook page for the orchestra, then to their Video page, but no live broadcast!

Apparently the feed was late: an amateur (seemingly) is broadcasting it right now.  The singer is doing well, but it is hard to hear the words distinctly without a proper microphone.

I tried too, but must not have waited long enough; I should have tried again later.   :(

Just returned home. Did I ever have a blast!
Glad that you had a good time Karl!

Looks like it's up there now in any event.

Just tried again to watch it; alas, after a minute or so, Facebook redirects me over to a notice saying that I must login in to Facebook to continue.  I'm not on Facebook.

I have tried to extract the video, but have not yet succeeded.  My computer-genius son might know how: I will contact him later this morning.  He can open up the programming gibberish behind any page, glance at it, and start tinkering to do whatever he wants (almost).   8)

Great!  The crowd seemed to be fairly good in size and attention.

Did any future possibilities arise through the concert?

Just got a msg from Orlando with a link to the video on the FB event: https://www.facebook.com/lowellchamberorchestra/videos/560934008546196

It's a funny thing: Two of the other participants, violinist/violist/composer Mark Berger and clarinetist Todd Brunel have been Facebook friends of mine for perhaps as long as I've been on Facebook, but last night was the first we met in person. Todd especially received my piece very well ("you had a magical piece performed tonight," he told me) and he is interested in Deep Breath, my piece for clarinet and strings. If I can get Orlando (who also told me he loves the Op. 172) on board with that, I should be happy as a clam at high tide. The soprano, Rose, is fabulous, and we agreed that we need to collaborate more.

Just listened!  Excellent performance of excellent music.
You obviously acheived the goal of writing music that was fun to perform.
