Arranged for the University of Delaware Pep Band for their 2016-17 season, playing for the University of Delaware basketball teams. Conducted by James Ancona, director.
Each year, students that participate in the University of Delaware Pep Band are invited to arrange songs for the pep band to perform at the home games for the UD men's and women's basketball teams. (The band does not travel to away games, except for the tournament games). I was fortunate enough to have been allowed to arrange Sweet Caroline for the band, a timeless classic that is performed by high school and college bands all over the country. This arrangement uses a slightly different take on the well-known melody. adding a bit of swing to it!
Far Horizons (from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) for video game orchestra
Arranged for the University of Delaware 8-bit Orchestra. Performed on their Spring 2017 concert, on May 14, 2017 in Loudis Recital Hall. Conducted by J. Ario Casanova.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most immersive, incredibly addicting games I have ever played. Taking on the role of the Dragonborn, a hero who is destined to save the land of Tamriel from the return of the dragons, the character ventures into the massive, beautiful world of Skyrim, a land filled with soaring mountains, ancient castles, medieval towns, dungeons, monsters... and of course, dragons. Far Horizons is one of the many beautiful, ethereal pieces of background music that the player hears as they explore this world, and it evokes the sense of awe and adventure that makes Skyrim so special and unique.
