A NIGHT AT THE CINEMA (2021)

A Night at the Cinema explores the versatility of trumpet in film music through 5 contrasting vignettes. The piece opens with a film noir scene, a date night at a restaurant featuring a jazz combo. Our couple then travels to the theatre, where they see an exciting action film showcasing heroic exploits and triumph over evil. Finally, our hero honors those who fell in order to protect us from the nefarious forces.

Special thanks goes to Nikc P. C. who provided thematic material for the Hero and Villian’s themes and to Miles Smith and David Witter who provided vocal talent.

This brings me to question: is Detroit still home if I don't recognize it? 

Through writing A CITY OF FACES, I explore this idea and the true meaning of 'home'. I do believe that Detroit is still my home because of the people who are there and the love we share. A city isn't just a collection of buildings, it is also made of the people—the faces—who live there.
