Dear Grego Applegate Edwards,
My sources of inspiration are so directly rooted in emotions and my processing and translating life experiences, that it is always my hope that the music can, in turn, resonate with listeners in personal ways. Thank you so much for your thoughtful listening, for your openness, and for this wonderful understanding of my music.
Most appreciatively, Rain Worthington
I’m so excited to announce two career milestones coming in early 2016.
The release of my debut solo orchestral CD, DREAM VAPORS, February 12, 2016 on Navona Records and the March 1, 2016 premiere performance of Tracing a Dream – for orchestra, at the Missouri State University Composition Festival in Springfield, MO.
Where would composers be without the skilled mastery of musicians?
From Iceland to Italy,
California to Virginia to New Hampshire…
Thanks to these wonderfully gifted musicians for their exquisite performances of my music in 2015
I am so grateful for their skill and artistry!

Just wanted to share… a video poem for An Evening Indigo

Now released! Rain Worthington’s Night Stream and Rhythm Modes
on Navona’s ELEMENTS RISING CD
Navona Records’ latest offering of chamber music ELEMENTS RISING highlights contemporary composers who re-imagine the building blocks of music, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics, and timbre, in innovative ways, applying them to a number of duo and ensemble settings.
Night Stream has had a wonderful history of performances with a World Premiere at the 2014 PARMA Music Festival, a CT Premiere at the Festival of Women Composers in Hartford, and a NY Premiere by Miolina (Mioi Takeda and Lynn Bechtold).
Thanks to some awesome musicians for their beautiful performances of my music in 2014.
Coming up December 18th… Afternoon Reflections in the evening
Please join me at the next Musical Amoeba concert – December 18th, “American Voice“at 8:30pm, Christ and St. Stephen’s Church, NYC
Musical Amoeba Founder, Composer, and Clarinetist, William Wheeler, will be performing my piece for solo Bass Clarinet, Afternoon Reflections.
Although this work has had a varied and interesting history – an award in Great Britain with a premiere performance in London by Marc B. Naylor; a nice write up in The Clarinet Journal by Robert Riseling, and a home studio recording by Italian virtuoso clarinetist, Guido Arbonelli.
This will be the US Premiere, and the first time for me hearing it performed live!
Hope you’ll come enjoy the sound of bass clarinet in concert!
(Thanks Musical Amoeba, for this nice feature profile.)
This is certainly a thrill.

I’m very excited that the recording of my piece, Within a Dance–a tone poem of love, for small orchestra, is part of this terrific enhanced-content compilation disc (with scores included) LUMINESCENCE, Navona Records, NV5969 (2014)
LUMINESCENCE brings to light six works for small and large orchestra, showcasing the inspired directions and composers of contemporary orchestral music.
Rain Worthington’s Within a Dance–a tone poem of love reflects on a first invitation to dance and the continuation of the dance of love with a tenderness of touch and a lingering embrace. Her music communicates its emotions and speaks to the senses.
