Musical Arrangements for Theatre Shows

The Owl and the Raven
The Owl and the Raven

For several years now I’ve been writing musical arrangements for “A Musical Taste Of Our Canadian Heritage”, produced by Odyssey Showcase and sponsored by TD Bank. In 2013 Deborah Davis [producer] asked me to write a short piece featuring Inuit dancers, based on the traditional Inuit tale “The Owl and the Raven”. I composed a simple pentatonic melody in the style of some Inuit melodies I found and scored an arrangement for woodwinds, strings and percussion. Here’s an audio clip using sounds from my notation software  [Sibelius 7].
