New content up this morning! Check out the fabulous premiere performance of "Rituals at the Center of the Universe" given by the Gwinnett Symphony Wind Orchestra. Many thanks to this fine group and especially their director, Thomas Wubbenhorst for commissioning and performing my music!

It's a composer's dream weekend! Looking forward to performances of my music by Chamber Cartel tonight ("So Small Against The Stars" - 8 PM -Mammal Gallery in downtown Atlanta); Moto Contrario Ensemble tomorrow ("Wandering Into Myth" in Trento, Italy); and the premiere of my large symphonic wind ensemble work, "Rituals at the Center of the Universe" tomorrow night given by the Gwinnett Symphony Wind Orchestra - 7 PM, Discovery High School in Lawrenceville, GA. Very grateful for this amazing flurry of performances!

Privileged to receive a stunning performance yesterday of my octet for 4 saxes & 4 trombones, "eight shades of metal" by FSU faculty and students at the 18th Biennial Festival of New Music (https://fsufnm.github.io). Thanks to my pal Jon Whitaker for commissioning the piece in the first place a few years ago! Also wonderful to hang with my colleagues!
