The Covert Ensemble performs “The Sky Between Us”, by Jenni Brandon on April 1, 2023, 3:00 PM at the North American Saxophone Alliance 2023 Biennial Conference. The conference is held in Hattiesburg, Mississippi at the University of Southern Mississippi. This work is for alto and soprano saxophones and piano, and is approximately 12 minutes in duration.
About the piece, Jenni Brandon writes: Using the colors of the saxophones and the piano, I want to create a soundscape that interweaves the ideas of togetherness through beautiful melodic lines, rhythmic gestures, and fluid motion. The work will be a journey of movement and opportunity to tell a story of hope. The theme of “The Sky Between Us” represents the idea that no matter where we are or what we do in the world, we are under the same sky. We celebrate diversity through being connected to one another through music, and this work will explore the joy of the collaborative experience through the music.
