Anne McKennon, Composer - Printable Catalog
Mostly, I write the music I want to write.  I'm inspired by what's around me, especially nature and whimsy.  I believe in blooming where I'm planted and focusing on local musicians.  It is my sincere hope that people will buy my scores, love them, and play them.  If I'm lucky, my music will live beyond my own imagination.  While I don't chase commissions, occasionally those stars will align.  My commission fee is $25 per voice per minute.  Piano counts as 2 voices.

Current Project

Fanfare in the Weeds (est 5-7 minutes)
for Narrator and Full Orchestra (or subset thereof)
Dedicated to Dr. June Hammond whose conversations helped inspire this idea
A narrated walk through weeds commonly found in southern lawns: Frogfruit, Dandelion, Crabgrass, Clover, HOA.  (We can't forget the HOA, can we?)  Each weed is depicted in a short fanfare.  The fanfares may also be performed individually without narration to introduce a concert.  Suggestion: Choose a different fanfare to introduce each concert of the season.  At the final concert, play the entire series with narration.  This project is an evolving process - details are subject to change.
Rival (duet for flute and clarinet) is to be featured in 2 festivals summer 2024:
ICA Clarinetfest 2024 in Dublin, Ireland - July 31 at 2:15pm
NFA Flute Convention in San Antonio, TX - August 2 at 12:30pm
Both performed by Duo Elektra: Dr. Mary Matthews, Flute & Dr. Mark Cramer, Clarinet
This is my music living beyond my own imagination!
