The choral and organ music of Dan Locklair, the composer-in-residence and a professor of Music at Wake Forest, was heard across the eastern United States recently:
On Nov. 5, A Winter Twilight (SSAA) was performed by the Radcliffe Choral Society (Andrew Clark, conductor) at the Sanders Theatre of Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. The piece is a preview of a movement from the composer’s Winter (from the forgottens), the complete version of which will be premiered in December. Others composers on the program include Monteverdi, Victoria, Barber, Dufay and Brahms.
Also on Nov. 5, renowned organist Marilyn Keiser performed Locklair’s Phoenix Processional and In Mystery and Wonder (The Casavant Diptych) as part of her recital at Verizon Hall of The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Pa. She has recorded both of these works as part of Loft’s The Music of Dan Locklair.
On Nov. 6, Locklair’s Remembrance was presented by the Cathedral Choir as part of the Choral Eucharist at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, Ga. Dale Adelmann is the Cathedral’s Canon for Music.
