A Second Time

Le Long du Chemin, my 14 minute monstrosity of a piano piece is actually going to get a second performance. (Technically it's the third, but my grad recital doesn't count).

It has been programmed for the 10th Annual Contemporary Composers Festival in San Francisco this coming summer. Now all I have to do is find a performer to play it, as finding your own performer is one of the stipulations of the concert. Having an average of 1 hit for every 100 entries I send out, I didn't think it would actually happen.

So on the hunt I go for a Bay Area based pianists willing to take on 14 minutes for very little money.... good luck to me!

The Show - World Premiere

This is very exciting!!

Soprano Danya Katok and Pianist Nana Shi will perform the world premiere of The Show at the Rotunda at CUNY Bronx Community College (Bronx, NY) in an exciting recital of living composers including Ned Rorem,  Andre Previn, Richard Hundley, Juliana Hall and Georgia Stitt.

The recital is on May 2nd at 4pm. 

I am so excited to get this piece performed. I think it is my best work to date (just finished in Dec. 2011). A much appreciated thank you to Danya and Nana for once again giving me the opportunity to hear my work performed by world class performers. They are truly amazing artists!!
