I recently was hired as the director of the Sunland Singers, a 35-member community choir in Mesa. We won't start the season officially until October, but I have been working with the librarian and starting to plan the repertoire for the fall. I was pleased when they contacted me about the job, because it fits nicely in with the other directing jobs I have: Church, Band, Orchestra, and now Choir.
Meanwhile, I am also thinking about repertoire for the Mesa City Band and the Silveridge Pops Orchestra. I have some ideas for music that I think will be fun to prepare next season.
I have lots of ideas for further compositions, and now I have the time to do them. I hope to have a new Mars piece finished soon--I've been tinkering with one for weeks now. I also have some new jazz piano pieces to polish up and post. Then there are some projects and pieces that are only beginning to form in my head. Hopefully I'll make the time to bring them into fruition.
Well, that's all for now. Happy Summer everyone!
