    • Many thanks to Elektra Women’s Choir for their stunning second performance on March 9th, 2019 of my commissioned arrangement of “Little Green”, written by Joni Mitchell…the concert’s title – When The Spring Is Born – is, in fact, taken from a lyric in this heart-wrenching song. The arrangement was premiered by Elektra at a concert to mark the VSO’s 100th anniversary on January 28th, 2019. Thank you to Morna Edmundson, artistic director, for her continued support of my work, and of the women composers and arrangers featured exclusively for this concert, programmed in celebration of International Women’s Day. PLANS FOR PUBLISHING THIS ARRANGEMENT ARE (still) IN PROGRESS but I’m happy to report discussions are now FINALLY moving forward – STAY TUNED!! If you are interested in performing this arrangement with your women’s choir, send me a message directly: kate [@]
