In early 2017 I began to notice a recurring theme in conversations with my conductor friends, as well as posts by their colleagues online. It seems that while they would love to tackle much of the beautiful contemporary repertoire being composed today, much of it is simply out of reach for their ensembles. This is often due to a number of factors - divisi, range, restricted rehearsal time, etc. And so after completing my PhD, I decided to offer a discounted commission drive aimed at creating new pieces of choral music that would be easy and accessible enough without sacrificing artistic expression or the joy of singing them. The response was overwhelming.

Starlight: An Anthology of Works for Mixed Chorus is the final result of months of collaboration with choirs hailing from three countries and five U.S. States, as a part of my Autumn Commission Drive. Some of these works are a capella, some are accompanied. Some are sacred, some are secular. Some are fast, some are slow. All of them, however, are four-part choral works with no required divisi, simple enough to be tackled by a wide variety of choirs and challenging enough to keep their interest.
