The Freeport High School Select Chorale, directed by Stephen Pagano, will perform my SATB divisi setting of Emily Brontë’s Fall, Leaves, Fall on their winter concert on December 18 at 7:30 PM at Freeport High School in Freeport, NY (50 S Brookside Ave.). It is a great pleasure and honor for me that Steve (who is retiring this year) is including my work on this concert. I was a member of this group when I was 16-18, and Steve played a big role in my decision to pursue music as a career. Congratulations on your retirement, and a heartfelt thanks.
