Arranging Aaron Copland's "Rodeo" for Carillon
Presenter: Frances Newell
Come to Aaron Copland’s orchestral tone painting of the spirited American West! Frances will bring you into Copland’s orchestra pit and show you how to bring the symphony orchestra into your carillon! Lively cowboys, tough cowgirls, wild horses, and the vast prairies and mountains of the American frontier are brought to life in Copland’s orchestration! Frances will show you how to get the most out of Copland’s harmonies, melodies, counterpoints, rhythms, and instrumental colors to make them effective on carillon. Use the techniques that Frances will show you to arrange any orchestral score.
Frances Newell, experienced folk and opera singer, performed her original oratorio, “Soul’s Believing”, and her original operetta, “Captain Charlie”, with members of the Monmouth Symphony. She played the carillon at St. George’s-by-the-River in Rumson New Jersey, and at The Church of the Ascension in Clearwater, Florida. Her original carillon duet, “Passion”, won First Prize in the Sacred Music Competition in Perpignan, France, in 2015. Newell’s original carillon compositions and arrangements are published by the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America and American Carillon Music Editions. Her original handbell compositions and arrangements of Beethoven are published by From The Top Music.
