This concert will feature the world premiere of a new piece commissioned by the Western Wind Ensemble, And yet the light returns, to a poem by Rami Shapiro. The new piece is a reflection on light, as a central symbol for Chanukah and other winter celebrations, and its return at a times of darkness both literal and emotional. The concert will also feature my piece Chanukah Lights, in its first performance in a new arrangement for mixed choir (the piece was originally written for treble choir).
