Play of the Sky
Play of the Sky was a commission from Dr. Paul Hunt, esteemed trombone professor at Kansas State University. This three movement chamber trombone concerto is a whirlwind of color and imagery which explores different faces the sky wears.
The Soft Mist
This short song cycle reflects on the mysterious night. It uses poetry by Kahlil Gibran, an important figure to Wakim due to his Lebanese heritage. The whimsical nature of Gibran’s poetry almost makes music in itself, and it was a joy to write music to it.
Vocalist, Madison Moore.
