Music Professor's Arrangements Chosen for Publication

Dr. Stephen Clickard, professor of music, has had three of his "little big band" arrangements chosen for publication by Walrus Music Publishers. Based out of Pismo Beach, California, Walrus publishes some of the most prestigious composer/arrangers in the jazz world. Walrus recently began a project to arrange classic songs from the American songbook that have moved into the public domain.

Dr. Clickard was asked to contribute to the project. His newest arrangements are of "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," which he set as an up-tempo swing, and "There'll Be Some Changes Made," which is done in a funk feel.

In addition to those arrangements, Walrus has also recently selected to publish his original composition, "Strollin' With Miss J," a tribute to his wife Janel.
