World Premiere of "Whether the Weather" by Amuse Singers

My commission and upcoming World Premiere of “Whether the Weather” by Amuse Singers in New York will be on February 23 and 26, and March 4. Tickets and more information about their Weather Reports concerts are available here

I’m flying to New York and will be at the March 3 concert if you would like to come say “Hello.” Please let me know if you are coming or find me after the concert.  

Need a little something to make you smile? Check out my program notes for the concert:

“When asked by Amuse Singers in June of 2017 to write something fun, playful and upbeat about the weather, I will admit I was a bit apprehensive at first. It felt like what we needed was not more fun, but more skills in mediation and communication. And yet, Amuse was right, we do need a bit of levity. And so it came to me at about 2AM — whether, weather, and .... weather (I do love homonyms.) A little searching on Google and ... yes, a poem about the weather and a mediation tactic all wrapped up in a lovely little British rhyme, reminding us that it is possible to weather the weather and each other. And so, ‘Whether the Weather’, a fun, upbeat piece with a bit of choreography, a Latin beat, and even a little barbershop, was born. Feel free to sit back, enjoy the ride, and after the concert, be sure to shake hands with your neighbor.”

Whether the weather be fine
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not. 

~ Anonymous British Rhyme
