Break Free on Wings of Music

The concept for this music was by Karen Earle Lile, written initially as prose, then the Oakland Symphony commissioned the music and lyrics be written for symphony, chorus, soprano and tenor for the Breath Free on Wings in Rhythm Project.

What emerged from this commission was a 14 minute piano reduction (from orchestra) and choral arrangement written by Kendall Ross Bean and lyrics/libretto by Karen Earle Lile. The music now has the title: “Break Free on Wings of Music “. Currently James Anthony McMillen is creating the arrangement of the music.
