It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any news, so I thought I’d make it a big one and post three announcements!
- I’ve added a section to the Music page for the pieces I’m writing at UMKC. I don’t have recordings yet, but I’ve put up information for my solo horn piece, Ad Lib(er Abaci), and my women’s chorus piece that will be premiered at the end of May, Voices Rising United.
- Speaking of premieres…. I was thrilled to have my piano piece Five Scenes premiered by Lamar Sims, accompanied by the dancers of City in Motion Dance Theater, this past weekend. As I mentioned, Voices Rising United will be premiered by the Kansas City Women’s Chorus on May 31st. And on that same night, The Singers (Minneapolis) will premiere my SATB choral piece A Magic Like Thee. All the information for those concerts is up on the Live page. I’d love to see you at the women’s chorus concert if you’re in the area!
- Finally, I’ve added two new audio clips to the Current page, one from my in-progress string orchestra piece, Shards, and one sample orchestral texture I created for a client (which was a lot of fun). Check them out! I’ll continue to update the Current page from time to time with things I’m working on, including some of the pieces I’ll be composing over the summer. If you’d like to sign up for updates, you can use the links in the sidebar to subscribe to news via RSS or email.
Thanks for your support! I’m so excited at all of the opportunities that I’ve been given in the last year since moving to Kansas City, and I’ll continue to keep you updated as new ones arise!
I’ve added all of the pieces I composed in 2012 and early 2013 to the Music page! You can read descriptions of the pieces and view the scores. Check them out!
I’ve added an excerpt from a string quartet I’ve been working on to the Comp 2012 page. It’s fast and rockin’–check it out!
Curious about what I’ve been up to in my private composition lessons this year? I’ve added a new page where I’ll periodically post pieces that I’ve been writing–and the first one is now up! It’s brilliantly titled “Piano 1″ and you can find it over on the new Comp 2012 page. Check it out!
I’ve uploaded a recording of the liturgical Agnus Dei that I wrote for my church, Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach. Check it out!
The Live page has just been updated with information on two house shows I’m going to be playing this summer, one in Irvine in July and one in Costa Mesa in August. These will be “Pay what you want” shows–you can choose to see the concert for free, or you can toss in five bucks or so if you want to give a little extra support for the music. I’ll have my CD Songs From My Shelf available for sale. And there may or may not be a few new songs coming out into the light for the first time…. Spread the word and I’ll see you there!
