Upcoming Performances by McMurtery and Mack

Flutist John McMurtery and pianist Ashlee Mack have been two of my most dedicated advocates. They have played many of my pieces in recital, and made the first recording of “For Milton” for Perspectives of New Music/Open Space (Righteous Girls made the second for New Focus).

This Fall, McMurtery and Mack will be presenting several duo recitals in Illinois and Wisconsin (dates below). Among the pieces on the program will be my “For Milton.”
