January 2018 News  

I finished composing my Appalachian Trail Symphony: New England (Symphony No. 1) in April, and the first three movements were performed in November by the Wesleyan University Orchestra, conducted by Nadya Potemkina, in Middletown, CT!  I got a really good response from people in the audience and had a wonderful time.  If you missed, don't worry because it will also be performed in Milford, MA in April and in Bennington, VT in May.  See the details under "Upcoming Performances" above and I hope to see you at one of the concerts!  

Waltzing Dervish: The Wind Band Music of Keane Southard has received positive reviews in both BandWorld Magazine and at
NewMusicBuff ! You can still download a free copy of the album here if you haven't yet.  And if you already have listened and enjoyed the music, please consider   donating   in exchange for the download (Half the proceeds will go to the composer and half to the Northeastern State University Music Department, suggested donation $10).

The
Chorosynthesis Singers double album of social conscious choral music, called Empowering Silenced Voices, which includes my Do You Hear How Many You Are?, is now available for pre-order   and will be released in the spring!  The recordings sound amazing and you can listen to samples, including mine, here

This year my Showers Over Peaks and Vales for Orchestra was named a finalist/honorable mention in both the
American Composers Orchestra Underwood New Music Readings   and the Sioux City Symphony's 'Composer of the Year' Competition .  Unfortunately though, that means I'm still trying to find an opportunity to have it performed for the first time, but I'm getting close.

Kris Carlisle's album The American Evolution: Piano Preludes, which includes my Prelude No. 1 (Jazz) and No. 8 (Chromatic) for piano, came out this year as well and is a really fine album.  You can buy it on
CDBaby .

Speaking of piano preludes, I have composed two new ones this year, Preludes No. 14 (Berceuse) and No. 15 (Liquid), and made demo recordings of them.  Have a listen here and here and let me know what you think!

Additionally, I have a nice recording of my Blessing of Discomfort for women's choir that was performed by the Simpson College Women's Chorale.  Have
a listen!

As of September, I have a new job as Music Director of the First Congregational Church of Walpole, NH   where I play organ and piano and direct the vocal and bell choirs.  I'm also singing with and am the Apprentice Conductor for the Keene Chorale (no, it's not named after me!)


Our Indiegogo campaign for An Appalachian Trail Symphony (read my trail blog here ) raised a total of $4,055.23 (minus Indiegogo fees and plus a handful of donations made outside of the website)!  Thank you to the following donors:
