BRENT WEAVER: I'm interested in creating music that communicates emotion with a broad variety of audiences through fascinating melodies, harmonies and rhythms. I draw on all the sounds I've ever heard: classical music, jazz, rock, world music, folksongs, hymns and anything else that happens to interest me at the time. Come share my sound world!
Three Representative Works: The Lion Sings, for 16 horns and percussion, Blue Sky, Green Highway from Chehalem Sketches for piano and wind quintet, A Farewell Overture for orchestra
