You are warmly invited to an online publication “release party” of a new book of music by Howard Helvey:
Ten Piano Solos Based on Timeless Hymn Tunes
Howard will perform the ten piano solos from this new book, and offer brief commentary, in a special 45-minute online event on Sunday, November 15, at 7:30 PM. It can be viewed on Calvary’s Facebook page or the church website.
These piano solos gradually came to life from June through September, and were heard initially—sometimes in early form—during Calvary’s weekly online services of Morning Prayer.
Howard’s book was born directly out of the COVID-19 pandemic this year when choral and congregational singing all but disappeared. Circumstances opened up the necessary time for him to formulate and craft the collection. Transformations was recently released in publication by Beckenhorst Press, one of Howard’s main publishers since 1993. This is Howard’s 17th book, and his third one written for solo piano.
