Thanks to Peter Jarvis for programming my drum set piece Monday on the New Music Series at WPUNJ.
One of my former students asked yesterday whether I’m getting played more or whether he just was noticing more performances of my work. Thanks to Pete and others (Gina Izzo, Erika Dohi, John McMurtery, Ashlee Mack, Jay Campbell, Mak Grgic, Stephen Gosling, C4, Joseph Arndt, Manhattan Choral Ensemble, ISCM, etc.), I’m getting played more. I am very grateful to them for their advocacy for and dedicated preparation of my work. Composers don’t exist if their music isn’t heard.
