SOLO VOICE SCORES
Aphelion was written for another close friend of mine, Lauren Knebel. It was premiered as part of her Senior Recital at Baylor University. "Aphelion" is a greek word that describes the point in a planet or comet's orbit that it is farthest from the sun. In the song, it is used as a metaphor to illustrate that though true friends my be separated by time and distance, they will always find a way to return to one another.
Susurrations is an intensely personal work for me, chronicling (through a series of vignettes) my coming out process as a gay man. The work was premiered as part of my Senior Recital at Baylor University by my dear friends, Mackenzie Wilson and Margaret Barrett.
