New Year was inspired by the emotions of feeling the affects of change around January 2009 in Will's life. Will was glad to have the opportunity to write for two cellos at this time, exactly what he was hearing! A fitting musical outlet.
New Year was premiered by 2VC on March 14, 2010 at B'nai Jeshuran.
