Discipline

Janice Giteck (Seattle) received a 2005 GAP to cover expenses while creating a new score for Tikkun-Mending, an original composition for orchestra. The development of a new score will involve reducing the large orchestration to eight instruments, four vocal chanters and a tenor soloist. As a chamber work, Tikkun, which means healing in Hebrew, will have more opportunities for presentation in its trimmed down version. “It is an invocation for peace in Hebrew, Sanskrit and laced with witty commentary by Northwest poet, Madeleine Houston, a Sanskrit scholar and mythologist,” says Giteck. “It will also eventually complement Ishi, a commission by the Seattle Chamber Players, in a full length compact disc to be released.”

Janice also received a 1991 GAP.
