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.
On Monday March 4th at 7 PM, percussionist Peter Jarvis performs Fuller Brush Music, my solo drum set piece, as part of a new music concert at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.
This weekend C4 Choral Ensemble premieres “My Kiss is a Journey…” my setting of a poem by Stephen John Kalinich.
Already this month, my music has been heard in Macomb, Illinois and Los Angeles. The next three weeks include five performances in New York. A busy time! I’m most grateful to the performers and presenters for bringing these works to life.
