AMASS REIMAGINED YET AGAIN, FOR CONCERT BAND
Jocelyn’s 65-minute oratorio amass is proving to be a very fertile ground for continuing inspiration and work. “Facets” of amass was just premiered last March in North Carolina, and the “Gloria” was rearranged for concert band in 2016.
This season, the Midwest District of Kappa Kappa Psi has commissioned Jocelyn to create a new work for band based on her two popular choral works from the oratorio: the “Sanctus” and “Benedictus.”
This new arrangement will be titled Hymn to St. Teresa, in honor of her contribution in poetry to the oratorio. The piece will be premiered by the NDSU Concert Band, along with at least 5 other bands in the region during the spring of 2018.
