Description:

      It's fascinating to think about all the different ways we say goodbye. To people, places, things and even periods of our lives, saying goodbye is a necessary part of our life experience. Sometimes it's just a causal “see ya later” and sometimes it's a very difficult thing to say. The goal here was to create an uplifting and poignant production with this idea that will be specifically tailored for an up and coming ensemble. We based a good amount of the show off the inspiration video below, but made the decision to keep things less literal and more poetic.

      The instrumentation and orchestration was carefully crafted to make sure an ensemble of any size sounds full and rich. Stick out from the crowd by engaging with the audience emotionally, and you are guaranteed to stick out in the minds of the judges!

       This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2017 and was released for the 2018 season. -Perusal scores are available upon request.
