Welcome to Music Monday, where I share a little music with you. My plan is to post a link to some of my music or someone else's on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. It could be any type of music from art (classical) to up-and-coming musicians and colleagues, to mainstream pop. After all, it is part of music appreciation and musical growth! Enjoy!
This week, it's a video of a piece I composed and performed for Ghostbird Theatre Company's 2017 24 Hour Challenge (and you can read a little about the prompt and more on the challenge here). The piece is called " 24 Hours Without A Sail...it isn't safe." I've posted a little bit about it on social media (such as Instagram). It was a really cool experience (slightly terrifying, but good terrifying!). When I signed up to participate in the challenge, I was not expecting to win; I thought it would be a good networking opportunity. Well, I was awarded the prize for best musical performance!
Have you ever entered a challenge like this? It was a great challenge and a great opportunity to do something a little more "out there" than I usually do.
