Latest News June 2015

In May, I traveled to Hartland, Wisconsin where the Arrowhead Union High School Wind Ensemble  led by Jacob Polancich premiered my Uma Passacalha Brasileira ("A Brazilian Passacaglia") which was commissioned by the ensemble.  They did a good job! You can  listen to the performance here.  The school's symphonic band also did a great job performing my Do You Hear How Many You Are? for Concert Band on the same concert.

In March, I performed a piano recital at Bennington College entitled Recent Travels: Piano Music from Brazil and England featuring little-known masterpieces from the two countries I've recently lived in.  If you missed it, the concert was video and audio recorded, so you can watch each piece in a youtube playlist  
here.(Unfortunately the last piece, April - England by John Foulds was only partially recorded, but I made a studio recording in May which I think is  my best performance yet of the work.)  
 
I'm very excited to announce that the Northeastern State University Wind Ensemble (OK) led by Norm Wika, will be dedicating an entire concert this November to my wind ensemble works, both originals and arrangements, with plans to record the works for a CD next year!  They are also commissioning two new wind ensemble versions of other pieces of mine for the concert, it should be great! 

In April, I traveled to Las Cruces, New Mexico where the
New Mexico State University Symphonic Band , conducted by Ingrid Larragoity-Martin, premiered my concert band arrangement of John Foulds' Hellas: A Suite of Ancient Greece originally for string orchestra, harp, and percussion. I should be receiving the recording from the concert soon and will share it!  

I also traveled to Portland, Maine, in April where my works The Dove in the Ash Grove and Swansong, both for cello and piano, where performed at the Back Cove Contemporary Music Festival. 

Speaking of The Dove in the Ash Grove this week I'm heading to Memphis, Tennessee because the piece won 3rd prize (out of 95 entries) in the 2015
Belvedere Festival Composition Contest!  It will be performed on Thursday night.
