soloist and orchestra and was commissioned by a consortium of orchestras

Gordon Ross, Music Director and Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, Neal

Tekeeyah (a call) during a residency at
the MacDowell Colony in Spring of 2008, has written this about the
piece, “I believe our time calls for an awakening to our true essence as
human beings. The shofar (ram’s horn), with its natural power and
centuries of service in calling Jews to awaken, can be an important
instrument in this collective renewal of purpose. The trombone’s breadth
of range and dynamics complements and extends the expressive capacity of
the shofar.”

featured on her critically acclaimed Albany Records Streams in the
disk of Torah-based choral/orchestral works.
