I feel like I’m finally starting to “get” the whole Mozart “thing”... so many beautiful dissonances 🎶
Also, conducting is actually pretty fun 🤗
Come join me, the Cathedral Choir and organist Andrew Morrisson for Mozart’s Requiem at St Andrews Cathedral at 6:30 pm tonight!
Soloist rehearsal sounded great last night! Join us for Mozart’s Requiem tomorrow at 6:30 pm 🎶
There is nothing like recovering from an insane period of time + travel and finally being able to sit down and make/eat a healthy, home-cooked meal with actual vegetables 😋😋😋 Kale, rice, egg and sriracha 🍳 (4 of the major food groups), + paprika and soy sauce roasted almonds for smoky chickpea avocado wrap lunches 🥑

We’re resourceful here in Aberdeen - here’s the Cathedral Choir of St Andrews Cathedral rehearsing my new setting of Psalm 96 with a keyboard for an organ and a bin for a music stand, in a snowstorm! And sounding great! To be performed at the enthronement of the first female bishop in the Scottish Episcopal Church today 😊 #bigday #twopremieres

Good morning Aberdeen 🌈🌦 #rainbow #aberdeen @uniofaberdeen
Wow... incredible rehearsal with the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir last night. Like, chills-inducing. Amazing work, everyone!
Rehearsals are in full swing for the final piece piece of my PhD, a 25-minute work for the Chamber Choir and Percussion Ensemble called ‘Babylon’. The piece puts together texts from American folk sources and sacred texts, on themes of journeying and exile. There will be dissonance. 😈
Join me, fellow PhD student composer Théophile Krosi-Douté, our guest conductor Michael Bawtree, and the University of Aberdeen Chamber Choir and Percussion Ensemble on Thursday 1 March at 7.30 pm for an evening of two epic world premieres!
