Written for Allegro con Brio of Allegro Choirs of Kansas City, The River Home is merely an arrangement of the American folk song "Shenandoah." While on a choral tour of Italy in 2016, I discovered that despite how awesome my time in the Italian culture had been, I deeply missed Kansas and my home. This piece stemmed from that feeling of longing and I think beautifully captures the desire of "going home."
This work is scored for SSAA and piano.
This composition is recommended for an intermediate to advanced ensemble.
