Hello friends! Take a look at this wonderful performance by Maureen Batt and Cheryl Duvall presenting “Crossing Borders“, a celebration of New Music from New Mexico to Nova Scotia!
The wonderful Rice Chorale directed by Tom Jaber has recorded my choir piece, Jesus Jesus, an adaptation of the traditional melody Jesus Jesus rest your head. Take a listen on my audio page when you get a chance! I’m in the mood to write a new choral piece soon. If you have any suggestions on a text or subject, please share!
I wanted to share with you 3 new opportunities to hear some of my music played by extremely talented musicians.
August 3rd at Christ the King Lutheran Church – 7:30pm Bassoonist Eryn Bauer is putting on an awesome recital including my new Bassoon Piece commissioned by Eryn entitled: “but I don’t WANNA go to Bed!!” Come on by for a listen to some music for a double reed duet, woodwind quintet and a new solo bassoon piece!!
August 9th at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, NV – 1:30pm in the Pisa Pallermo, flutist Megan Lanz will be performing “Red Stilettos”. Megan commissioned this work from me a few years ago and I am extremely thrilled that she will be playing it for thousands of flute enthusiasts!! If you know anyone who will be at the convention, please pass along to come take a listen!
August 11th at the M Hotel in Minneapolis, MN, My sister Krysten will be marrying an amazing guy whom I’m thrilled to call brother. The Cedar String Quartet will be premiering “Variations with You”, music that I wrote for their wedding.
I am extremely excited for all the talented musicians bringing my music to life. Thank you all!
I just received notice that Red Stilettos for Solo Flute is going to be performed at the National Flute Convention in August! It will be performed by my good friend, who commissioned the piece, Dr. Megan Lanz, and will be part of a concert of Las Vegas Composers. I wrote this piece a few years ago for Megan and am extremely thrilled that she will be playing it again, and at such a highly respected venue! If you are around Las Vegas in the beginning of August, stop on by for a listen. If you’d like a preview of the piece, take a listen on my audio page.
I’m currently working on a new piece for String Quartet for the new installation at the Rice Art Gallery. Violist Dawson White has commissioned this piece to go along with the installation. The idea of the installation will be “liberating form”, from there, I am creating music. I recommend you all come take a look and listen on March 17.
I wanted to start off the new year with some blogs about me and my music! First off, I have my 2nd Doctoral recital coming up on March 13th at 5:30 at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
