New and original music by 21st century, American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland. This extremely versatile publication of a score and set of parts is a great addition to any musician’s music library:  either school, church, or community orchestra. Excellent for young musicians or intermediate-level volunteers, for the beginning conductor, but full of meaning for the professional players as well.

James Nathaniel Holland is an American-Costa Rican classical music composer of operas, symphonies, ballets, songs, and other musical concertworks that incorporate a unique, eclectic, blend of romantic, classical, world and jazz styles.
Born and raised in Indiana, he studied music at DePauw University, Vienna Austria, Interlochen National Music Camp and Indiana University (Bloomington, IN). At these schools many of his early pieces were premiered and performed, with one work being selected for main-stage production in the season.
Moving to Los Angeles and then settling in New York, he performed professionally sometimes as a singer, sometimes as a pianist, sometimes as choral conductor. He composed incidental music for the stage. In 2002 he founded a composers collective where they showcased their work. He was one of the first composers to participate in the American Music Center’s initial on-line library. The New Jersey Concert Opera and the Gay Men’s Chorus of New Jersey also featured his comic operas and art songs.
From 2005 he moved to Costa Rica where he organized concerts with visiting guest artists to present his chamber music to the public.
