30 Day Music Challenge Day 3 Triplets

Triplets. Word. 30 Day Music Challenge. Day 3.

This was not intentional to use a word of threes on the third day.  A happy accident! Serendipity!

In July 2012, I wrote a piece for the trio Alternate Destination, called Trinities. This is such a three-filled song, with triplets too, that it was an obvious choice for me today.

Trinities is written for three players (bassoon, soprano sax, didjeridu), uses a three-bar pattern of 3/4 — 3/4 — 3/8, and consists of three short movements.

This is one of our first performances of Trinities, at the monthly chamber music jam. Classical Revolution PDX is a loose group of classical musicians who bring classical music to the people in a casual, coffee shop setting. Portland has a thriving chapter. Look for your local group.
