Updated 2014

Below are Scores, MP3s and an Info Sheet for each piece. Depending on how you've set your browser, they'll either download to your computer or open on your screen.

AUDIO QUALITY: Most of this audio is archival, rehearsal quality or midi-generated. Professional quality audio & video of some of Deborah's orchestral performances is available on the DVD & CD "Invention & Alchemy."

INFO SHEETS: Outline Instrumentation, performance length, orchestra features, etc.

HOW THIS PAGE WORKS (THEORETICALLY): MP3s shoud open in a small window (they may take a moment to load). Scocre should open in a larger window. Everything should open in a separate window so you have access to scores, sudio and info sheets simultaneously.

SEASON of CELEBRATION (Holiday Program)

A Note from the Deborah: I originally wrote these two Holiday Suites to play with the New England String Ensemble - so they were both originally written for string orchestra. I subsequently expanded the arrangements of some for full orchestra.

CHAMBER PERFORMANCE? Season of Celebration #1 may be playable with single strings - but Season of Celebration #2 requires at least two on a part for the violins.
