The Central Florida Composers Forum and Timucua Arts Foundation are pleased to announce a series of concerts to benefit and honor American military veterans. We will present Canines for Veterans, a program of brand new music and poetry on November 9, 10, and 11 in Winter Park, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Proceeds from these concerts will be donated to K9s for Warriors, a Florida-based charity that provides service dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
The concert will feature patriotic standards and new compositions by Florida composers written for the Sovereign Brass and in the case of the performance at Trinity Preparatory School in Winter Park, two new pieces for choir. Premieres will include a new piece by me called Threat Perception as well as works from composers Larry Adams, Stan Cording, Benoit Glazer, Susan Lackman, Keith Lay, Daniel Saylor, Tim Stulman, and Rebekah Todia. Local poets include Alice Friedman, Carlton Johnson, Holly Mandelkern, Jane Peterson, Al Rocheleau, and Ruth Titus.
