Lost in the Orange Grove (2008)
Sax Octet/Double Sax Quartet (SATB/SATB) with stage movement 5'
Premiere March 6 2008, Kresge Recital Hall, Pittsburgh, PA
A work for 8 saxes! Or rather two SATB sax quartets. The work is a loose arrangement of the jazz tune "Tangerine" and asks for some basic stage directions. The first quartet begins on stage while the second plays backstage in the distance. The backstage quartet moves on stage (while playing) and shortly after the first quartet moves out into the back of the audience, creating a call-and-response effect of chords.
