RSBE from Spring 2021 at Amarillo Opera


I'm about to go off to Heartland Opera which is collaborating with Missouri Southern State University on the 6th production of RSBE. Here's the video from last spring's 2021 production of RSBE at Amarillo Opera. The accompaniment is the two keyboard version which has piano and keyboard. 

The Amarillo production changes the premise from the original version at the University of Alabama. This optional premise incorporates COVID into the plot in a more plausible way. Either premise can be used when producing the show at this point.

Art Songs and Arrangements


I'm not known as much for art songs and arrangements, but over the years, I've amassed over fifty of them. Probably the best known is an arrangement of the spiritual "Hold On,"  

An art song "I know the stars" is popular too. Anyway, I always hate things languishing on the shelf so what I've got  here is a chronological list of my art songs and arrangements, along with their first pages. There are links to recordings for some of them. If you're interested in doing something, please get in touch.
