This summer the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra's 15th Anniversary Concert will premiere a new work titled "Denali World" that was composed by Alan Chan, who was a 2016 Artist-in-Residence at Denali National Park and Preserve.
"My new piece is a musical reflection of my journey to the Denali National Park in Alaska last summer," Allen said reflectively. "While there, I discovered not only the majestic mountains, braided rivers and endless tundra, but also wild animals, hidden streams and colorful mushrooms, all contained in this new work."
The Alaskan premiere will occur in Fairbanks on Wednesday, 7/19.
