Presentation Abstract

From especially May 2011 to present, I have composed, and continue to compose, drafts of many incomplete original musical compositions. This project utilizes the assistance of a student working on such compositions, preparing them for such purposes as performance, publication submission, and self-publication. The student is assisting mostly using Finale notation software, in such functions as expanding “short scores” into full ensemble scoring, and in such tasks as adding dynamics, articulations, slurs, etc. and editing scores for clarity and graphic excellence. Beginning in August 2013, Priscilla Soto (Bachelor of Music in violin performance student) and I have made major progress on five movements of two concertos for organ and orchestra. The Celebration of Research poster will document stages in the genesis of one of these five movements. In addition, we have progressed on two unaccompanied choral compositions (This Little Babe and The Giver Given) on texts by Robert Southwell (c1561-1595); Aspirations for oboe and choir on a text by William Huber, Jr.; and Psalm of Ascents for symphony orchestra.
