January 16, 2005 at the historic Trinity Theater, 36th and O Streets NW,
in Washington DC. The work will be presented along with music by Mozart,
Puccini, Gershwin and Cecile Chaminade.
The composer writes about the work, "Celebration! deals with the joy
and celebration of life that we need to express after coming to terms
with the darker side. With all its excitement and vigor, as well as its
interesting unexpected turns, Celebration! makes a great concert opener!"
Erik E. Ochsner - Music Director of the SONOS Chamber Orchestra has
said of the work, "We had such positive feedback from audiences on how
much they enjoyed Brian Grundstrom's work, Celebration! It is modern,
yet tonal, enjoyable, and playable."
