Chris Childs Orchestra

Chris Childs Orchestra premiering Childs’ cilium no. 3 entitled /ˈsīlən(t)s/ for chamber orchestra.

Lyrics by Brian Egan

Performed at the Mammal Gallery in Atlanta, GA for the Creative Loafing: Best of Atlanta block party celebration on September 25, 2015

“Over the course of a month (eight rehearsals), we weren’t all together in the same room until the actual performance. Although a little rough around the edges, this performance harnesses the intensity that went into writing and rehearsing it. The musicianship that was available in front of me was amazing and wide-ranging from members of Atlanta bands to Atlanta orchestras. I will forever remember this gathering of people, the CL: BOAtl 2015
