2017 Concert and Recording

The Saint Bernardine Concert Choir invites singers to join the ensemble for an encore performance of my “Canticle for Pope Francis” (SATB) and “Triptych” for women’s chorus (SSA). The concert rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings (7:30-9:00 PM) in the church. Vocal scores and CDs of the accompaniments are available on request and at the rehearsals.

The “Canticle for Pope Francis” has been completely revised with additional material. The 2017 version includes a new Prelude and Postlude plus a “Dies Irae” (Day of Wrath) and a “Requiem” (Eternal Rest) depicting the civil war in Syria with narrated material based on Pope Francis’ sermons and statements.

The Concert will be held at the church on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM.

For further information please contact me.


I have just completed the first movement of my “Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra”. The second and third movements will be ready by November with a studio recording of the work available in December.
