From MacDowell

A quick dispatch from MacDowell where I’m deep in autumn, nested in the woods and finishing Switch.

Check it out:

Some very cool music happening this winter.

February 13th. 8PM. Spectrum, New York
Just in time for Valentines Day, check out City of Tomorrow performing the New York premiere of Daedalus! Always an awesome program with this excellent group—and super fun people! All inadvance of our recording project in June!!

February 6th, 2016. 8PM. Pickman Hall. Cambridge, MA
The legendary Dinosaur Annex will tackle Ephemera. I’m really thrilled to be working with them after a long time of knowing their work and admiring so many of their performers!

And don’t forget….. Feb 12-14 and 19-21. Switch, my very first work for stage, will premiere at Le Laboratoire, Cambridge. The absolutely amazing Laine Rettmer will direct! It’s been a while in the works, but this opera is picking up steam now. Can’t wait, and very much hope you’ll be there!

A few spring events are in the works! Details soon…….

Etchings 2015

Such an honor to teach again at Etchings. A really wonderful experience and a joy to make such great music with my friends. Thanks to all!

I’ll be teaching composition again this summer in the heart of France! WIth the inspiring help of guest Franck Bedrossian and Nicholas Isherwood, working with a new group of young composers will be pretty exciting. Plus, scenes from Switch, my upcoming opera, will be workshopped!
