The Music of Steve Dunn


For the third consecutive year, I will have the privilege of being part of the Concerto Judging Panel for the Gulf Coast Steinway Society's 2020 Music Competition for Piano and Instrumental Concerto, January 18, 2020. This is the fifth annual competition for the solo category and the third year for the concerto competition. It is always a treat to hear these young people (middle school, high school and collegiate divisions) present wonderful musical offerings - and a treat to hear them again each September as the winners perform with the professional GCSS Orchestra.

I recently came across this video (from Christmas season 2018). It's my setting of "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel", performed by a conservatory group in Portugal. Adapted for woman's vocal ensemble from the original SATB and accompanied by orchestra, it is lovely performance set in the gorgeous Funchal Cathedral. I hope you enjoy it!
