Commissioned by the Omaha Conservatory of Music for OCM SoundWaves 2022 Summer Music Camp.

 

By way of a rather liberal retelling and a bit of satirical humor, this work re-interprets the heroic exploits of Parsifal, Perceval, and the search for the Holy Grail through the eyes of two Peculiar, Propitious, and Pleasantly Playful Penguins.

Composed - March 2022
