April 21, 2014 – TaiHei Ensemble performed Sun Lion’s White Sail, a mobile-form work for viola and unspecified instruments, at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR.
The Driscoll Alphabet for chorus is a set of twenty-six blocks of music, each corresponding to a letter in the English alphabet. It can be performed in two ways:
- The entire alphabet can be performed, A to Z, as written. The duration is about 15 minutes.
- Any of the letters can be performed, in any combination. They need not spell actual words, although this might be a good place to start. (At the first performance, VocalEssence spelled out “Voices of Quiet Joy”, a piece lasting about 7 minutes.)
