The gorgeous recording of my piece, “Daughter of the Stars”, done by the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, can be found here: https://heatherniemisavage.com/product/daughter-of-the-stars-mp3-recording/
“Daughter of the Stars” won 2nd place in The 2020 American Prize for Composition (pops/light music division). David Katz, Chief Judge of the competition said of it, “Traditional sounds and scoring for strings: attractive, competent. Has a nice feeling, vaguely nostalgic, leading to a rich setting of Shenandoah which is done so well as to catapult the piece to another level. Accessible to many ensembles technically, and worthy of many performances. Special.”
My solo piece for piano, “Meditation No.1: Sustenance and Praise” has been chosen for the online Psalm Gallery as part of the 2021 Calvin Symposium on Worship, put on by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship. If you are interested in this Symposium, it is online this year from January 6-26 and is FREE. Details are at this link.
I am very pleased to announce that my piece, “Impromptu No.1 for Solo Double Bass” has been chosen for performance at the VII Encontro Interncaional de Cordas in Brazil in June 2021!!!
