The orchestral arrangement of AMEN! (2017) was commissioned by the Reno Philharmonic (Laura Jackson, conductor), Gateways Music Festival (Michael Morgan, conductor) and the American Composers Orchestra. The original commission was by the University of Michigan Symphony Band. This piece pays homage to my family's four generational affiliation with the Pentecostal church. My intent is to re-create the musical experience of an African American Pentecostal church service that I enjoyed being a part of while growing up in this denomination.
