THE ART OF FLIGHT

Written as a companion piece to Vivaldi's Four Seasons and alternating between movements with the violin as soloist and orchestra functioning as a Murmuration, the Art of Flight depicts the phenomenon of birds in motion.  

The Art of Flight was commissioned for the bicentennial celebration of Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati (1817-2017) and in collaboration with the Murmuration installation by visual artist Anne Patterson.
