Latest News February 2015

Winter has been pretty brutal here in New England, but luckily I have some good things to look forward to in the coming months:

Just a few days ago, I finished my latest work,
  Uma Passacalha Brasileira   ("A Brazilian Passacaglia") for Wind Ensemble commissioned by the  Arrowhead Union High School Wind Ensemble  in Hartland, WI, led by Jacob Polancich.  The piece features a big percussion section with a bunch of Brazilian percussion instruments.  I also just booked my flight out to work with the kids in rehearsal and attend the premiere on May 21.  The school's symphonic band will also be performing my  Do You Hear How Many You Are?  for Concert Band on the same concert.

My wind ensemble arrangement of Frederic Rzewski's
"Down By the Riverside" , will be performed March 19th by the Middle Tennessee State University Wind Ensemble, led by Reed Thomas, in Murfreesboro, TN and also on June 4 by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Wind Symphony in Sydney, Australia, conducted by John Lynch.

On March 18, I'll performing a free piano recital here at Bennington College entitled
"Recent Travels: Piano Music from Brazil and England" which will feature little-known masterpieces from the two countries I've recently lived in.  It will include works by Nazareth, Villa-Lobos, Guarnieri, Santoro, Gnattali, Warlock, and Foulds .  I hope to see you there if you're in the area!
 
On October 30th of last year, pianist Kris Carlisle  performed the premiere performance of my Prelude No. 8 (Chromatic) and I'm happy to announce that he will be recording the work this coming summer for inclusion on his next CD!

On April 1st, pianist
 Christopher Janwong McKiggan  (who's first solo CD was just released) will be premiering my Sound of Cowbell, a piece he commissioned, at Rice University (my father's alma mater) in Houston, TX!  He will also be recording it later this year for his next CD, entitled "Resonance of Hope"!  
The
New Thread Saxophone Quartet  premiered my "1267 Notes"  in New York City on January 11th, and they gave an incredible performance!   Watch the video of the performance , it's only a minute long.
 
Thanks for reading and visiting my website!
