The Little Boy (2012) for SATB choir - 5'
Commissioned by the Hollywood Master Chorale as part of the Voices of LA Project
2013 Vancouver Chamber Choir Contest 2nd Prize Winner
The Little Boy takes its text from William Blake's "The Little Boy Lost" and "The Little Boy Found" from his Songs of Innocence. I chose these texts with the theme of 'Father's Day' in mind since I knew the piece would be premiered on that special occasion. The Little Boy is dedicated to my father, Nadim S. Haddad, the most intelligent and familial man I know.
Premiered June 17, 2012: Hollywood Master Chorale conducted by Lauren Buckley in Los Angeles, CA
