"Love Songs" for Soprano and Oboe

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.

Found Objects: New Reed Trio

Found Objects: On the Beach for Oboe, Clarinet & Bassoon

Jenni's newest work for Reed Trio tells of finding objects on the beach - from tumbled stones to sea glass; from driftwood to black feathers on the sand and the seashells that populate the beach as far as the eye can see.

Premiered by the PEN Trio (Nora Lewis-oboe, Phillip Paglialonga-clarinet, and Eric Van der Veer Varner-bassoon), this work is published by TrevCo Music Publishing on the new PEN Trio Collection Series!

Listen to recordings below from the premiere with the PEN Trio.
