It’s exciting news that the Library of Congress has officially announced the 2011-12 Koussevitzky Commission winners! Check it out here. I’m honored to be on the list!
Last week, the Washington Square Contemporary Music Society gave a commanding premiere performance of Aura, a new concerto for alto saxophone and ensemble. Louis Karchin conducted at the Tenri Cultural Institute in New York. Aura was written for the Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress. Thanks for all involved: an amazing ensemble, and a fabulous soloist, Mary Joy Patchett.

I just heard that I have been awarded a commission from the Koussevitzky Foundation to compose a work for the Washington Square Contemporary Music Society! What great news. Thanks to Brian Fennelly and Louis Karchin for all their support in sponsoring our application! This award comes at an amazing time since I am a fellow at Tanglewood this summer and Serge Koussevitzky founded the festival.
