With a new school year comes new premieres! I’m proud to announce my piece, Bells (for soprano and piano), will be performed for the first time at the Knights of Pythias Lodge in Tempe on October 21st at 7:30pm.
I’m excited to announce that my newest string quartet, Horizon Line, will be premiered at the Phoenix Art Museum on Saturday, April 23rd at 1:00 pm. The concert is part of an annual collaboration between the ASU Composition Studio, the Phoenix Art Museum, and ASU’s String Project.
The eight-member Grand Valley State University Trumpet Ensemble, under the direction of Alex Wilson, will be premiering my new piece Earthquake City at the Large Ensemble Semifinals of the 2016 National Trumpet Competition. This year, NTC is being held at Columbus State University in Columbus, GA on March 10th-12th. Earthquake City was commissioned by the GVSU trumpet studio in the fall of 2015.
I will also be at NTC for the premiere, thanks to a grant from the ASU School of Music. Hope to see some of you there; I’m looking forward to networking within the national trumpet community!
