I'm excited to hear a performance of "Two-Lane Blacktop" by the Luther College Concert Band at the upcoming College Band Directors National Association Regional Conference at Ball State University. The concert takes place on Feb. 27 and I'll be participating in a composer's panel the next day with Pulitzer-Prize Winner Michael Colgrass. Read more at the conference website here.
The intrepid duo STRIKE (Paul Vaillancourt, percussion and Jeff Meyer, piano) are once again on the road! This time they'll be performing my work "Duo Toccata" at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. I can't thank them enough for the many performances they've given of my music!
Today is the world premiere of "Pictures of the Floating World" for sax quartet and percussion quartet here in Fort Collins. I am honored to have this being performed by not one, but two outstanding ensembles: the Oasis Quartet and the Vasanta Percussion Quartet. This is part of the 2nd biennial Aries Composers Festival here at Colorado State University. Hope to see you there!
