Description About the Composer

The Wayfarer's Path - (Level IV) Commissioned for string orchestra by Oakton High School in Vienna, Virginia, assisted by a grant from The Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, during a year-long composer-in-residence term. Scored for violins, violas, cellos, basses, plus an optional substitute violin for viola part. The piece is based on repeated themes and rhythms that make the music both very lyrical and playable. There are no swing eighth-notes. Everyone gets melodic material (though not necessarily the melody itself) at various points of the work. While this piece includes no improvised solos, it is thoroughly influenced by jazz melody, harmony, and phrasing. This music is inspired by many influences, especially by various African dances that feel mixed-metered to the Western world. The title comes from the history of exploration and discovery, whether geographical, innovative, or other. Such “wayfarers” journey through many challenges towards the discoveries that add to our heritage forever. Jazz String Ensemble
