Thank you, Bill! It's an honor to have worked on this project and brought these veterans' stories to light. I will not be at the conference as I have other engagements. I hope we cross paths sometime in the near future!

I'm honored to announce that I have been awarded the Raabe Prize for excellence in sacred music composition from the ALCM! 

It's a pleasure to be in the company of recent winners Dan Forrest, John Ferguson, and David Cherwien. My winning piece, Nada Te Turbe, will be performed by the National Lutheran Choir this summer at ALCM's national conference in Indiana.

When I was living in Perú, Maria del Carmen Dongo and her ensemble "Mano Madera" rehearsed above my room. It was thrilling to be immersed in these cyclical, poly-rhythms and to study the cajón with her. If you're unfamiliar with Afro-Peruvian music, have a listen!
