Things are heating up over here! Lots of new works, performances, publishing developments.
Let's start with the business side --- Dan Won created a wonderful webstore for those pieces that aren't available elsewhere --- instrumental and choral. (I call them 'my orphans'.) Check it out at www.leekesselman.com. Also, I'm now publishing my solo voice music with Rob Peavler at www.northstarmusicllc.com My double-reed music is gradually coming into print with TD Ellis at www.trevcomusic.com, a specialist in double-reed music. My choral music continues to be published with www.musicspoke.com, www.halleonard.com, Boosey & Hawkes, Carl Fischer Music. I'm working hard to get all of music past and present works up and available.
Speaking of which, THE BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS, my first opera with James Tucker, is almost through its re-notation process. It received almost 400 performances in its first few years.
Check out the calendar on this website for some upcoming performances. Before 2024, HAVEN TRIO, York High School, Butler University, DeWitt Community Singers, Robin Kesselman (bass) & Louis-Marie Fardet (cello). Probably many I don't even know about.
New pieces this year -- just completed or in final stages: BLOCKS for bassoon quartet, a 12-choir consortium for the SATB HYMN TO TIME (all premieres in 2024), Young Naperville Singers, Portland Symphonic Girlchoir in the spring.
More news soon! Thanks for your support of my music! LRK
