“Alleluia” for mixed chorus and marimba will be published in the Craig Hella-Johnson Choral Series with G. Schirmer. The work was commissioned by the Texas Two-Year College Choral Directors Association (TTCCDA) and will be premiered by the Texas Two-Year College All State Choir this coming February 2013 at the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
“A Dome of Many-Coloured Glass,” a cantata-concerto for mixed chorus, soprano, and marimba, will be published in the Dale Warland Choral Series with G. Schirmer. This work was premiered last year by the Houston Chamber Choir to great acclaim. The HCC will perform the work again this March at the National Convention of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) in Dallas, Texas.
Bloomington residents can hear the Jacobs School of Music Contemporary Vocal Ensemble perform “A Dome of Many-Coloured Glass” on Tuesday, October 9, at 8pm in Auer Hall, conducted by DiOrio.
