Amazing American Composer October 24, 2010

Posted by joinchoir in Uncategorized.

Abbie Betinis of Minnesota is being programmed by all the “Bigs” in choral music: Anton Armstrong, Dale Warland, Scott MacPherson and many others. This piece grows and grows, swirling around in perpetual and very melodic motion. Soprano, Alto and tenor solos and group glissandos add drive and interest. What an amazing piece by an amazing composer. Her website: http://www.abbiebetinis.com
