Buenas tardes Carmen,

Según nuestra conversación telefónica me dirijo a ti con el fin de pasarte los detalles de mi grupo Coral.

Son 33 cantantes, mas un pianista.

En Madrid vamos a hacer 2 conciertos entre el 18 y el 20 de Abril, uno en el centro y otro en las afueras de Madrid ( a mi se me ocurre Aranjuez o El Escorial, algún sitio asi… ). De momento solo necesitamos hacer el intercambio/bienvenida de corales en uno de ellos.

Tambien vamos a tener conciertos por Andalucia y Portugal por lo que si tuvieses algún contacto que me pudieras facilitar te lo agradecería.

PRESS RELEASE
The weekend of August 29, 2015, the New Score Chamber Orchestra and Chorus, Jamie Wehr, Music Director, will be performing the world premiere performance of the orchestral version of my composition “A Psalm Beyond the Silences,” a Jewish Holocaust remembrance piece for mixed chorus set to words by Dr. Joseph H. Albeck. The orchestra and eight-voice chamber choir are professional, and the performance will likely be recorded.

Not only is Matthew Curtis (www.choraltracks.com) working on a demo recording of RAIN, he is also doing so for PSALM 1 and THREE MINIATURES. 

To the ECS Publishing Group:

“Hi All,

Just to let you know that Ocho won 1st Prize in the Choral Competition last night, singing Stanley’s composition Yih’yu l’ratson.

So thank you all for your assistance … it was very worthwhile!

Stanley … just to say that your composition was a massive success. Everyone was asking what it was and where it was from! The judges said that we created a wonderful atmosphere from the first note and it was a beautiful song.

So thanks to everyone for your assistance!

Regards

Derek

Ocho”
