It has certainly been a busy semester! I sang with the Rutgers University Glee Club and Kirkpatrick Choir on an epic performance of Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex in March of this year, and then had the tremendous pleasure of conducting the Kirkpatrick Choir in a beautiful performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass in G Minor with a fabulous orchestra. (Recordings to come soon) Finally, I closed out the year conducting the Rutgers University Choir in their fantastic concert on May 5 (see the picture above).
I’m also thrilled that my latest piece to be printed with GIA Publications was released this spring; The Dream, one of my three original Edna St. Vincent Millay settings, is scored for SATB choir a cappella. You can hear a recording here.
Finally, I have recently joined C4, the New York City-based Choral Composer-Conductor Collective, and will be singing and conducting in their upcoming concerts on May 29 and 31! In particular, I’m honored to be premiering Fahad Siadat‘s beautiful new composition, “O Magnum Mysterium,” and conducting Abbie Betinis‘ incredible “Bar xizam.” Tickets for this award-winning ensemble’s May concerts can be found here.
There’s a lot more to share, but I wanted to post this update since I’ve been more than a bit neglectful this spring – stay tuned for more!
