~ FULL ORCHESTRA MUSIC ~
Orchestral Program Music
Description: Over the years, I've written a great deal of what I call “Orchestral Program Music.” With my background in film scoring, I decided it would be fun to create concert pieces for full orchestra which have a cinematic feel to them.
These pieces each have a different theme (like “Americana music” or “Children's Adventure music”) — they sound just like film music but are intended for the concert hall.
Even though these pieces are not currently available for performance, I'm sharing them here to show my skills in writing for the full orchestra.
Various full-orchestra pieces are currently in progress, including a Clarinet Concerto, and a Suite for Orchestra.
