Will You Fare On My Song
The first place winner of the Choral Canada competition - this piece sings itself with intuitive phrases and sweet spot registers. The National Youth Choir will premiere the composition at Podium 2018 - where hundreds of choral fanatics will gather - and Sheldon will be honored. Marjorie Pickthall’s poignant poem asks “Will my words and music live on? Will my life on earth be remembered for anything after I’m gone?” Sheldon’s melodies and lush harmonies provide a wonderful marriage with the text.
