We're thrilled to announce our new Concert Series, edited by Dan Forrest.
This highly selective series features music suitable for school, university, and community choir use. Many of our regular Beckenhorst publications "cross over" into these choirs regularly, but up until now our composers have often had to publish secular texts or concert works elsewhere.
But no more! This series also gives Dr. Forrest the opportunity to put his editing skills to use, and use his connections in the concert music world to broaden the BP umbrella. We've received great feedback from our customers and our industry partners already, and we're thrilled with our first three publications:
- Marques L. A. Garrett's Sing Out My Soul! commissioned by Eastern ACDA,
- Jonathan Reid's haunting Measure Me, Sky,
- Marianne Forman's setting of The Gift To Sing, awarded an Honorable Mention in the King's Singers New Music prizes, 2021!
Our goal is that any piece in this series deserves to be well-known in the school, college, and/or community choir repertoire.
