Edmonton: Pro Coro Canada sings Motion and Use

My choral piece Motion and Use, a setting of five verses from the Tao Te Ching, will receive its full-chorus premiere this fall. I developed the piece this past winter at the Banff Centre in collaboration with Pro Coro Canada and music director Michael Zaugg, and I'm deeply grateful that they are performing it again.

Memphis' Blueshift Ensemble will be premiering my Buddha Body, a three-movement expansion of last year's Dharmakaya, commissioned by Crosstown Arts. I'm also creating arrangements for Blueshift to accompany a set by Don Lifted, who is creating visuals for the whole concert.

All of this is part of the first annual Continuum Festival at Crosstown Arts. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1735452636754766/
