We have some great projects in the works including a Call for Scores from professional composers and our Maverick Apprenticeship program for high school and college age students and ensembles. Apprentices will have the opportunity to coach with members of the ensemble and perform in concert with us.
Currently working on String Quartet No. 1, several piano solo pieces, and a set of pieces for euphonium and piano.
Recent work: Moving Seven Ways, for viola and claves, and Scenes from a Fantasy Novel, ten short pieces for piano solo.
Two sonatas for tuba and piano are available for premiere.
Much new material by composer/leader Larry Chernicoff: violin flies like nightingale among bari sax, bass clar and tbone. Tilted rhythm & tart harmony over solid rhythm section. Rocking group improv becomes celestial chamber sound behind vibes solo. Doowop influence appears. Acoustic chamber sound, wide blend of influences. Beauty+humor.
