National Park Soundscapes

To celebrate the National Park Service centennial in 2016 Jill released “National Park Soundscapes,” which is a collection on music about 12 different National Parks from Acadia to Zion.

She will also be presenting concerts of this new music in some of the Parks included on the recording as well as at other music venues.

The music will also be presented in an orchestral format for the 1st time as a “National Park Suite.” This will be an arrangement of 4 of the new pieces from the recording for orchestra and solo oboe/English horn.

After a busy summer of presenting this new music she will return to Glacier National Park as an Artist in Residence for the month of October. She hopes to create some new music about this park as well as share it with the local community in a concert format.

Please visit the upcoming performance link on this page to see where she will be presenting the music.
