Commission Consortium: STELLA CLARA

Commissioning a new piece of music is a worthwhile and rewarding endeavor. In the last few years, I have had the opportunity to commission pieces for my own choir, and have also been commissioned to write pieces for other choirs. If you have you ever wanted to commission a new piece for your choir, but limited funds have prevented you from doing so, then I would like to invite you and your choir to participate in my first-ever COMMISSION CONSORTIUM.

I will compose a piece using the familiar “Star light, star bright” nursery rhyme, set in Latin (including an original second stanza) by acclaimed lyricist CHARLES ANTHONY SILVESTRI. Below are some more details:

VOICING: SATB unaccompanied
DIFFICULTY: advanced high school / collegiate / community choir
DURATION: approximately 3-4 minutes
COST: $300 per choir
DEADLINE: Registration and payment must be received by September 1, 2015 November 1, 2015.

- Each participating director will receive a PDF of the completed score via email by January 1, 2016.
- Participating choirs will share exclusive printing and performance rights until June 30, 2016.
- The names of all participating choirs and conductors will be included in the dedication.

To participate, or for more information, simply email me.
