The Rain Song

for Chorus and Body Percussion (SATB, SSAA and TTBB Versions)

This piece was written while walking through the Mission District of San Francisco on a rainy evening. California has been experiencing a serious drought these past few years. I was thrilled to feel the raindrops, hence the celebratory feeling of the piece.

    This light-hearted holiday song was commissioned by a local community chorus, one of whose members wrote the words.
