Premiere of “Light Upon Light” in Greenwich, CT this Saturday and Sunday

I’m honored and delighted that this Saturday and Sunday, the Greenwich Choral Society, under the direction of Paul F. Mueller, will be premiering my newest choral work, “Light Upon Light.” It’s a piece that combines texts on the theme of light from each of the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The theme of light is at the center of the concert, which also includes the Hanukkah song “Light the Legend” and J.S. Bach’s “Magnificat.” When I was contacted by Maestro Mueller about the commission, I decided to take the theme of light and explore it from these various angles.

You can read a wonderful article about the piece and the concert at the Greenwich Time website.
