A Night in Nepal

A Night in Nepal for for string orchestra (2006) was commissioned by the Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School Orchestra in Lexington, Kentucky (Kathryn VanFleet, Music Director). It was written after a visit to Tibet and Nepal. Dinner, one evening, at a rennovated monastery in Kathmandu was accompanied by traditional music and dance, the sights and sounds of which provided inspiration for this work. The sectional character of this piece are derived from a variety of indigenous and regional pieces that were performed by a small band of instrumentalists, singers and dancers for the dining guests.
