In my last blog I wrote about my quartet's exciting weekend in Washington, D.C., performing seven works by young Native American Composers, as part of the CLASSICAL NATIVE festival that was sponsored by the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of the American Indian. The concerts were recorded and the second concert, at the Kennedy Center, was broadcast live in streaming video. Today I received copies of the videos on quicktime from composer Jerod Tate, who is the teacher of the composers whose work we performed. The individual works are much easier to view on YouTube, so I'm posting them here for you:
"Coyote March on a Full Moon" by Paris Fairbanks (Ojibwe)
"Past the Sun" by Wyas Parker (Chickasaw)
"Emo Childhood" by Courtney Parchcorn (Chickasaw)
"Moonlight Springs" by Emmanuel Gray (Navajo)
"The Song of the Ride" by Joel Waukazo (Ojibwe)
"The Memories Start Now" by Katelyn Duty (Chickasaw)
"Purify" by Ryan Hoosava (Hopi)
Amazing videos Caeli! You guys sound great.
