Starry Things (2002) - Belinda Reynolds
for beginning string orchestra
Commissioned by San Francisco Conservatory of Music; Premiered May 2002 - San Francisco, CA
Starry Things was originally commissioned by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as part of their “CONSERVATORY IN THE SCHOOLS” program.
The piece gets its title from two sources. First, the music is based on the opening from “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” The second source is the name of the school for which the work was especially written, Starr King Elementary School.
Special thanks goes to Emily Bowman, who inspired me to arranged this piece for orchestra.
Approx. Duration: 8'
