We are very proud to announce that our Choral piece, 'Reaching High', is being published by Colla Voce Music!  Lyrics by Eddie Cavazos & Jeff Davenport; Music by Eddie Cavazos & Mark Hierholzer.  The piece is arranged for 2 Part/Piano and is ideal for Promotion, Commencement and Graduation. 

'Reaching High' was initially composed as a Unison piece for the 20th anniversary celebration for Scobee Elementary in San Antonio, TX, Northside ISD.  It became a popular piece among Elementary schools in Northside ISD.     

The piece took a dramatic turn when in 2017, it was introduced to Mark Hierholzer, long time friend and amazing composer/arranger.  Mark has had many pieces published by the likes of Henry Leck, Colla Voce & Alliance Music to name a few.  He has had his pieces performed at Carnegie Hall as well as all over the world!  Mark wrote a second vocal part and a piano accompaniment to complete the new arrangement!

The news of it's publication is bittersweet in light of the fact that Mark Hierholzer passed away on September 10, 2018.  His legacy, however, lives on in the beautiful music that he created and leaves behind for all of us to enjoy!

Release date for, 'Reaching High' is unknown as of this writing.  I will be posting news as I receive it!
