Now that it's been more than a year since the premiere of Mabinte—one of my all-time favorite musical experiences to date—I figured I'd finally get around to sharing some photographs from the premiere.
August 17 was a beautiful, warm night on the Charles River Esplanade, and it was a great chance to collaborate with some truly remarkable people. I co-composed the piece with Ryan Edwards, and our piece was choreographed by the inimitable Brian Mirage. Students from Camp Harbor View, Yawkey Club of Roxbury, and others joined in the show, and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra—under the effervescent baton of Christopher Wilkins—filled the air with sound. There were something like 4,000 people in attendance. It was just amazing.
