Cristian Perez’s arrangement of “Oh Shenandoah” was filmed last week by the Shenandoah River.
Cristian, a FOMM scholarship awardee (MM 2012), double-majored in Performance and Jazz Studies and credits Mason with expanding his musical horizons and teaching invaluable skills that make him unique as an artist. Yana Nikol completed two years of postgraduate studies at George Mason University, which included jazz lessons with Kenneth Rittenhouse, a member of The United States Army “Blues” Jazz Ensemble.
"Oh, Shenandoah" is a folk song dating back to the early 19th century. The song lyrics have several variations. Although the song is often associated with Virginia, the song refers to the Missouri River and the Oneida tribe’s chief Shenandoah and his daughter who is wanted in marriage by a canoe-traveling trader. Cristian has registered his original arrangement and both PDF and physical copies are available by e-mailing [email protected]
