I could not be more thrilled that my new piece “The Devil’s Tower” has won the SACRA/PROFANA composition competition. I adapted my own text on the Kiowa story of Devils Tower in Wyoming to write a new piece for this competition, and it was an absolute joy to work on. Thank you so much to artistic director Juan Acosta, outreach coordinator Sacha Peiser, and everyone on the panel for all of their hard work and support of new choral works.
The piece will be performed on their “Gender: X” program, part of their tenth anniversary season, with guest conductor Emilie Amrein. Catch the concert at St. David’s Cathedral, 5050 Milton St, San Diego on Friday the 22nd at 7:30 pm (tickets), and at Christ Lutheran Church in Pacific Beach on Saturday the 23rd at 7:30 pm (tickets).
