As part of my composition coursework for UNK I composed an original piece for symphony entitled “A Ding Dong Decking!”. This cheery Christmas number was inspired by the idea of mashing various Christmas carols together for a new holiday experience. The final result more than exceeded my expectations.
The number was selected by the Kearney Symphony Orchestra (KSO), directed by Dr. Ron Crocker, for performance on their Christmas concert at the Merryman Performing Arts Center in Kearney, Nebraska. The number was extremely well received, and was televised by local news channels.
