Creation

Suite for Orchestra and ChorusSheet music & audio • Performance-ready

Years in the making, Creation is an impressionistic jaunt through the creation story as told in Genesis 1 for orchestra and choir. Intended to be both modern and audience-accessible, Creation is a multifaceted work that combines sweeping cinematic themes with inspiring neotonal harmonies and epic proportions. Embracing heaven, earth, and everything in between in all its glorious contradiction, Creation has something for everyone, from the naive to the sentimental, from the absurd to the sublime.
