2/27/2017 - Urban Coyotes' first album is due out this summer! My band has been hard at work in the studio recording and mixing 10 songs for a yet-to-be-named album of original music. I will post another update once I have a clearer idea when the album will be available. Yes, we are doing vinyl!

March 15th 2015 - Paul Hennessee was the honorary guest composer for the 6th annual Berlin International Music Project (BIMP). Two of his pieces "The Clock" and "The Shepherd" from his settings of William Blake poems were performed by the festival choirs and orchestra. Schools participating in the festival were as follows:
Berlin Brandenburg International School, Berlin British School, Berlin Cosmopolitan School, Berlin International School, Berlin Metropolitan School, Freie Waldorfschule Kleinmachnow International School, Villa Amalienhof Nelson Mandela School and Poly Prep Country Day School from New York, NY.
“The Berlin International Music Project aims to bring students from different schools together to make quality music in a joyful way. During the start up rehearsals and the intense two-day-BIMP weekend, the common love of music unites all the participating students in orchestras and choirs, while working as a real team towards the same goal: to enjoy the wonder of music making.”
Anna (Panni) Kovacs, BIMP Coordinator 6th BERLIN INTERNATIONAL MUSIC PROJECT.
"I am very honored to be a part of BIMP this year. To me, when so many wonderful musicians are brought together for a brief, yet intense period of collaboration, the experience often transcends the ephemeral quality inherent in music making and leaves both student and teacher hungry for more!"
Paul Hennessee, The Spence School, New York City
