This work in progress has been commissioned by:

AVIDduo (Minneapolis, MN)

AVIDduo is a flute and saxophone duo dedicated to expanding the repertoire of this unique instrumentation through the performance of new and contemporary music by living composers. Members Jeffery Kyle Hutchins and Brittany Primavera have performed together around the world, giving recitals in Asia, Europe, and across North America.


Excelsior! Trio (Moorhead, MN)

Excelsior! Trio performs an eclectic mix of classical, jazz, folk, and contemporary chamber music. Professional colleagues Russ Peterson, Deb Harris and Jay Hershberger have a deep sympatico for each other's musical styles, technique, and artistic personalities. After frequent collaborations at Concordia College where each member is a professor, the group officially formed in 2009. The trio has performed widely from Los Angeles and Cleveland, Minneapolis and Athens, GA, to St. Andrews Scotland and Fienza, Italy.

An alternate version of the work excerpted above is being developed for the group, which will include piano in its instrumentation.
