From August 11-24 I will be an Artist in Residence at the Rocky Mountain National Park, writing songs and staying in this cabin:
In a nutshell (one plucked directly from their website) here is an explanation of the program:
“The Artist-In-Residence Program at Rocky Mountain National Park offers professional writers, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Selected artists stay in a historic cabin for two-week periods from June through September.”
Here’s what their website says about me!
Musician and composer Bill McCormick is looking forward to exploring new terrain for musical inspiration. Coming from Carrboro, North Carolina he will be at Rocky from August 11 – 24. With the park’s 2015 centennial in mind, he hopes to compose songs that celebrate the park’s wildlife, the park experience over the last 100 years, and to commemorate former park resident and Pulitzer Prize writer, William Allen White. Mr. McCormick has produced numerous CD’s and has also performed in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Fringe Festival.
