Next season is shaping up to be very exciting! Here are some of the highlights:
I will be doing three very different residencies next season:
- I will be the Composer in Residence for Concerts on the Slope, a Brooklyn-based yearlong concert series. CoTS will be performing 6-7 of my chamber works, some in new configurations and instrumentations, and all by absolutely incredible performers! Stay tuned for specific dates.
- I will also be working with Street Symphony, a group of Los Angeles musicians led by the inimitable Vijay Gupta. I will be writing a new work specifically to be taken into LA County jails and homeless shelters to create a space for communication and openness between the musicians and the audiences. I am so excited for the opportunity to create music that engages in a meaningful dialogue with these audiences and brings them into the creative and expressive process.
- And of course I will be continuing as the Composer in Residence with the Pasadena Master Chorale for one more year, and will continue developing their composition program for middle schoolers through an intensive workshop throughout the spring.
In addition, I’m thrilled to announce a few really exciting performances: Next spring, American Composers Orchestra will premier a new orchestra work of mine at Carnegie Hall. This is my Carnegie debut, and I couldn’t be more excited!! Also, my women’s chorus work Tuttarana will be performed at the ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) Conference by the Mount Holyoke Glee Club in February! ACDA is the mecca of all things choral, and I am looking forward to attending for the first time! Also on the calendar are premiers by River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, the Orange County Symphony, Le Train Bleu and Yale Camerata.
