Following a sold-out run at Lincoln Center during the winter of 2022, the highly anticipated television premiere of “Intimate Apparel” by Ricky Ian Gordon and Lynn Nottage will air on PBS on Friday, September 23rd at 9pm ET as part of its Great Performances Series, which celebrates its 50th anniversary season this year. One of Gordon’s most recent works, “Intimate Apparel” tells the story of Esther, an African American seamstress living in New York City at the beginning of the 20th century. As Esther begins a correspondence with a laborer on the Panama Canal, she simultaneously grows close to a Jewish Orthodox textile merchant from whom she buys fabric, all the while carrying a secret she fears she cannot afford to reveal.

Kyle Pederson's "Stars" was born out of a life-long fascination with the night sky, and the text is a meditation on the interconnectedness of creation. Since we are the “stuff of stars,” where will we cast our own light? Whose world will we impact? This piece seeks to evoke the vastness and mystery of space through dense harmonies, simultaneously capturing the intimacy of connection. Now available for advanced SSAA Choirs (CM9722) and SATB Voices (CM9609).

The Teton Range is part of the Rocky Mountain chain, just east of the Idaho border and south of Yellowstone National Park. The name of this majestic range has its roots in the Shoshone “teewinet,” meaning “many pinnacles." “The Grand Tetons,” written by veteran Fischer Carl Strommen, involves mixed-meters and a swing-like feeling, followed by more strident material leading to a recapitulation of the opening theme as the piece draws to a close.

Kevin Hilbun's “Code of Honor” conveys the idea of respect and a sense of decorum. The introduction begins lightly, while the middle section elicits a heavier feeling. There are timbral shifts throughout the piece as instruments drop in and out of the texture periodically. A great option for educators in search of a march-like piece to round out their concert programs!

Ed Kiefer’s setting of the beautiful holiday classic “The Holly and the Ivy” is accessible for very young bands. Its memorable melody, notated in a comfortable range, is passed around the sections of ensemble as the other parts play accompaniments that are interesting, yet not difficult. The piece begins softly, building to a minor section before returning to major, making it a great opportunity to introduce students to bridge form!
