In 1996, Ken spent some time in Colonial Williamsburg, VA, a living history museum where people dress and act as if they were in 18th century colonial America. Here he was inspired to compose a six movement suite based on authentic colonial tunes which is titled "Colonial Williamsburg Odessy". This suite is for string orchestra, but includes optional singing, dancing, and acting to help recreate 18th-Century Williamsburg.
