I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as one of the finalists of the String Quartet Smackdown by the Golden Hornet for a second time! My first experience was String Quartet Smackdown V and now I am ready for String Quartet Smackdown VII on March 27 at 7 PM! Tickets are available at ondemand.drafthouse.com/.../string-quart.../!
Congratulations to Andrew Hosler (andrewhosler.com) on his upcoming solo album titled delta waves featuring eleven 21st century works for tenor saxophone, including my work Vision! Please check out his Kickstarter page to find more information and support this excellent project!
Excited that I have been featured as one of the 21 people in the classical music field who have shared their thoughts with the Symphony Magazine, the League of American Orchestras’ award-winning magazine, on "what's next for orchestras" in 2021!
"2020 was a year like no other: the pandemic, America’s long-overdue reckoning with race, financial downturns, starkly divided politics. Facing COVID-19 shutdowns and stringent health regulations, orchestras found innovative ways to keep the music playing—even while reexamining their roles in a changing society. As we head into a new year, 21 people in the classical music field share their thoughts on what’s next for 2021."
