It was a pleasure to spend the weekend at the 2020 Darkwater Women In Music at UNC Pembroke to listen to some great music and meet excellent musicians and scholars. I have been selected as the third prize winner of the composition competition. I would like to thank my wonderful performers Jillian Storey Storey, flute, and Andrea Tiffany, clarinet, for learning my work Perceptions so accurately and performing it so beautifully. I would also like to thank Sarah Busman, Professor of Flute at UNCP and Founder of the Darkwater Women in Music Festival, for the opportunity and the organization of this wonderful festival.
Looking forward to the performance of my work for solo alto saxophone, Vision, by the great musician and dear friend Taylor Barbay Assad at North American Saxophone Alliance 2020 Biennial Conference on March 6-9, 2020, at Arizona State University.
Happy International Women's Day, y’all (March 8). I am very grateful to be part of two festivals featuring music by women. First, being part of Prof. Paul Christopher’s program (Insomnia, for solo cello) on March 5 at 2020 Music by Women Festival at Mississippi University for Women. Second, being selected as a finalist (Perceptions, for flute and clarinet) for the composition competition at 2020 Darkwater Women In Music Festival at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke which will be held tomorrow, March 7. Stay tuned!
