Hello from Boston, where the autumn leaves are beautiful and the drivers are still awful.
A couple of exciting concerts coming up soon! First, three pieces of mine are being performed as part of the Boston Conservatory Composer Recital Series:
Thursday, Oct. 9, 8:00 PM - US premiere of Koch-aine, for piano trio, about the pernicious Koch brothers.
Tuesday, Oct. 25, 8:00 PM - US premiere of Ten Feet, for flute and percussion, about the melting of the West Antarctic ice shelf.
Thursday, Dec. 4, 8:00 PM - Pothos, a set of three songs for soprano, mezzo-soprano, flute, clarinet, and piano, about unrequited love.
All three of these will be live-streamed; check back for links.
And the big one:
Sunday, Nov. 16, 3:00 PM, in New York, the American Chamber Ensemble will be performing a full program of my music. The concert will feature legendary New York Philharmonic clarinetist Stanley Drucker. There will be two world premieres and a number of other works that the ensemble has performed over the past few years as well. And Stanley will be performing Bernstein's Clarinet Sonata with the wonderful pianist (and co-director of the ensemble) Marilyn Lehman - that is something you do not want to miss.
