Here’s your link to an article about Simon Garcia’s commission for the 50th anniversary of ISB Convention Young Bassists Program.
YB director, Gaelen McCormick, calls the work “wonderful – dreamy, rhythmic, elegant, whimsical.” She says, “It is very loosely based on The Elephant but is a modern sleek retelling. I can’t wait to share it with everyone at our final concert for YB on June 10. I’m hoping to get Simon to skype in for a coaching with the young bassists late in the week once we’ve gotten some notes under our fingers.”
Thank you, Simon!
