As part of the University of Mobile's "Faculty At Home" series during the current Covid-19 quarantine, here is an installment in the Alabama School Of The Arts "Ask Me Anything!" interview series. This is a replay of a Facebook Live video where we discuss Composing, Arranging, Conducting and Dad Jokes. Enjoy!
This isn't new, but I found this video of the Brazilium String Quartet playing an arrangement of the hymn, "Saviour, Like A Shepherd Lead Us" that I wrote some years ago now. It is part of the series Stringscapes, Vol. 1, which I arranged for Lillenas Publishing Company and which may be purchased through Lorenz (https://www.lorenz.com/instrumental/small-groups/stringscapes-vol-1). They do a nice job here!
It has taken quite a while, but I am pleased to announce that an online/credit card payment option is now available for music sold at Sdunnmusic.com! For all instrumental works we sell, you may add that work to your shopping cart, purchase it through PayPal and then download the PDF files.
For choral works, you will still need to contact me (email@example.com). There does note yet seem to be a clear way to set the required 5 copy purchase minimum in the store parameters; so we'll still have to take care of that one the old-fashioned way. I'm sorry for that inconvenience.
You do always, of course, have the option of contacting me directly (again, it's firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to pay by check. I can send the files and an invoice very quickly.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions or issues of any kind. We want to make this as easy and accurate as possible.
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!
