Feedback from my performance of an original composition Tapestry Tampa Bay

(Watch the whole piece in the video below…)

I conducted my composition “Tapestry Tampa Bay” for a new audience in Safety Harbor, Florida.

Tapestry Tampa Bay by Stephen P Brown

It is a piece for chamber ensemble in six movements, each describing a scene or an aspect of Tampa Bay that struck me as unique or unusual – just new experiences for a newcomer to the area.

  1. Beaches & Boats
  2. Skyway Bridge
  3. Grouper
  4. Downtown
  5. Churches & Arts
  6. Back for More

Feedback was amazing and very positive – see below – with requests to orchestrate some of the movements, as well as over 26,000 views of the 2012 World Premiere video.
