"Behold, the Gate" premiere stirs audience
"Behold, the Gate" for TTBB & Orchestra premiered to a packed Davies Symphony Hall April 14th & 15th. I composed the music and the multi-talented Tim Seelig wrote the lyrics. Here is what Roger Brigham, editor of Edge, said about the performance:
"Behold, the Gate" composed by James Eakin III with lyrics by artistic director Timothy Seelig, was a stunning and powerful introduction for the entire evening, teasing the audience with the emotions it would soon be flexing. It captured the breathless joy and wonder so many of us have had as we have discovered San Francisco and lived our own tales in our city."
