Join Jenni on a Yoga Retreat in Kauai!

 

 I'll be leading this yoga retreat in Kauai with my good friend and fellow yoga teacher Andrea Morgan.  There's so much included in this retreat: housing in Kauai in a lovely retreat center located in Kilauea, two locally sourced meals each day, and of course time to explore the island.  You'll also get two yoga classes a day as well - an all-levels flow class in the morning and a restorative class in the evening. Before the evening restorative class we'll also be premiering our brand new adaptationof the Bhagavad Gita with original music by me- an ancient text the helps us bring clarity to our lives and the idea of taking action to follow our own path. 

I'll be writing music and Andrea will be adapting this amazing text and each night we'll sing and perform a section from this incredible literary gem.  Check out our flyer!

For more info visit our retreat WEBSITE or contat me with any questions! Aloha!

 

"Love Songs" for Soprano and Oboe

This work was just performed during the International Double Reed Society Conference at NYU in August 2014.

Love Songs for soprano and oboe was commissioned by oboist Aryn Day Sweeney.  The texts - translations of Native American words - I chose to tell a story of the Native American woman – a story that she might tell to her child while she rocked the child to sleep. It is a story that I feel can be universally understood, but points to the strength of not only the Native American woman, but to the strength of all women to persevere, to raise children and to keep community strong against all odds.  It is a “love song” in that it goes beyond just romantic love, but tells of love for a child and love of the land.  

This work was premiered at Ball State University by Aryn Day Sweeney-oboe and Yoko Shimazaki-Kilburn-soprano in March 2014.
