 New music for the new year. Today I had a quiet day to myself to think and to compose. This is the first 34 measures of my next Wind Symphony piece. I'm very excited about this piece and about working with Wind Symphony again. This work is a bit different than "First Flight" and "Firework" (which can be heard at www.timcorpus.com). Come to Chicago to hear this in the 2017/18 season! . . . #chicago #composer #newmusic #composerlife #band #windensemble #windsymphony  Merry Beags-mas.
