David Picton Performance Announcement

Hi Folks! I am proud to announce that my music will soon be performed in Canada, for: 

"TAKE FLIGHT" - a series of four Classical Concerts in the New Brunswick area of Canada - (click on link for details)
A New Brunswick based classical woodwind ensemble, called Ventus Machinas, will be performing my woodwind quintet "Music For The Birds", in these four concerts, along with other works of living contemporary composers. It's a concert about birds! You can read about it in the link below.

My piece was inspired by local bird calls I had been hearing in the north-east coast area. The piece was premiered 9 years ago in New York City. A few years later I posted a recording of that performance on Youtube, and recently this Canadian classical woodwind ensemble picked it up, contacted me, and requested to purchase the sheet music for it. Naturally, I complied, and now it will be performed in this concert series. Plus, probably in more concerts to follow that. 

I guess they like the piece!

Ventus Machina is a professional woodwind quintet based in New Brunswick, Canada.

Best regards,

David Picton
