Chamber Piano Concerto Commission!

December 29, 2016

I am very happy to announce that Nova Chamber Music Series has commissioned me a chamber piano concerto for their 40th anniversary season to take place in the Spring of 2018. Exact date TBA!

NOVA’s current Artistic Director, Utah Symphony Pianist Jason Hardink (who will be performing my piece) was appointed in the fall of 2009. Under his leadership the series has deepened relationships with Utah composers while broadening NOVA’s profile nationally through commissions and recordings of works by composers Curtis Curtis-Smith, Jason Eckardt, and Michael Ellison. Since 2009 NOVA has featured collaborations with Utah Symphony Music Director Thierry Fischer, soprano Celena Shafer, and the PLAN-B Theatre Company.  

Stay tuned for more news!

As the leaves of the trees in Prospect Park start to turn, I gear up for a busy Fall.

Busy indeed since I starting working as the managing director of the SEM Ensemble in the early summer. Perks: had a lovely conversation with George Lewis as we walked up slowly Joralemon St to Borough Hall. A total treat.

Busy, yet excited to be working with fabulous trombonist David Whitwell on a new piece for low brass trio, with Maestros Dave Taylor on bass trombone and Jay Rozen on tuba. The piece will be premiered sometime in the Spring, 2015.

I'm also working on a new piece for Ensemble Mise-En, to be premiered as part of the Graduate Center's Composers Alliance spring concert in May, 2015.

And very thankful to Mary Hubbell and Alice Jones for still touring my piece cuncta fluunt. This time, with dance! (Tamora Petitt, choreography).
