Chalk on Concrete TTBB
This pointed work is a memorial for recent victims of racial, gun, police, and transgender violence, from George Floyd to the Orlando Pulse Nightclub. It is a fiery setting, changing between triple and duple rhythm and featuring much alternative harmony, energy and
dissonance. The text is interspersed sidewalk phrases with the composer’s own original text. Proceeds of the sale of “Chalk on Concrete” will go to the competition prize fund for the National Association of Negro Musicians.
