(Sea of Tranquility)
I was commissioned in the summer of 2007 by Jeffrey Bishop to write a short piece for his string orchestra at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Kansas City. They premiered the string version of this work on February 12, 2008. In 2012, a consortium of wind ensembles around the United States commissioned a transcription of this work for band, and it was premiered throughout the 2012-2013 season. In 2016, I arranged this work for saxophone ensemble. In 2018, upon meeting Nomad Session, I arranged this piece for wind octet, which they premiered during in the fall of 2018. During the summer of 2019, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, I arranged this work for clarinet choir.
The string orchestra version was commissioned by Jeffrey Bishop and the Shawnee Mission Northwest High School Orchestra
