It’s been several years since I have posted anything here, so perhaps it’s about time I provided an update of some of my recent and upcoming activities and events.
- Collaborations with UK writer and visual artist Zsuzsanna Ardó. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with Zsuzsanna on two different projects in which I set her texts to music. The first was completed this spring and is a composition for soprano, cello and drum entitled “Named.” I will post a link to the video here soon. Currently I am working on a second project, setting two other poems for mixed-voice choir SATB, to be performed in Oxford and London (UK) this coming November by the wonderful chamber choir vOx, directed by David Crown.
- Guest Composer at CNCM’s Summer Sizzle in Saskatchewan. I look forward to working with 15 young composers, as well as lecturing and performing at “Summer Sizzle,” held this coming July in Biggar, Saskatchewan. This event is held annually by the Canadian National Conservatory of Music, who have published some of my pedagogical piano pieces. This year I’ll be performing the premiere of my new Level 9 piece “Saanichton Saunter” – publication to be released at the event in their Northern Lights Level 9 publication.
