World Premiere in Iceland

This past week I was treated to a wonderful premiere of my song O You Whom I Often and Silently Come for Soprano and Guitar by Duo Fjara (Hlín Pétursdóttir Behrens, soprano and Ögmundur Þór Jóhannesson, guitar). The premiere took place in the beautiful town of Seyðisfjörður, Iceland at the famous Blue Church


Recording and perusal score for Of Thy Noble Past now available

I just received the premiere recording for Of Thy Noble Past, which was very well done by the Lafayette High School concert band. The recording, as well as the perusal score, is now available for your musical enjoyment. 


Of Thy Noble Past World Premiere

The Lafayette High School Concert Band will be premiering Of Thy Noble Past tomorrow evening at Lafayette High School in St. Joseph, MO. The concert starts at 7PM. I know the kids have been working hard on this piece, which is not easy to play. I look forward to hearing the fruits of their labor. 


Vocal music to be featured by Opera Elect

I am happy to announce that my art song The Friend to the Young Man in Love will be premiered by members of Opera Elect this summer during their New Music Concert Series. In addition, they have asked me write a companion song to Young Man so I will try to write something of worth between now and the April 15th deadline. Stayed tuned to the same Bat Channel to see if I succeed.
