Review from director of the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony, Andy Radford

"The Constellations - A Guide to the Orchestra, is a wonderful piece of music for either a concert for young people or a standard orchestra concert.  This enthralling piece demonstrates a complete scope of orchestral timbres through musical characterizations of the mythology behind the star constellations.  We programmed the piece as a multi-media presentation with slides of the constellations shown during narration and music.  The concert ended up being standing-room-only.  The music is playable by a good youth orchestra and was a favorite of our musicians.  I believe that The Constellations will eventually find its way into the hands of professional orchestras, where it will enter the repertoire for young persons concerts.  I strongly recommend this piece to all Music Directors looking for a dynamic piece of music with a multitude of educational connections."
