I’m headed out for a residency at Ucross–am delighted to return to the Wyoming hills after 4 years away!

Ripple the Sky visited the Kennedy Center this past December on a KC Jukebox show.  The work premiered on L.A.’s first 21c Liederabend installment at Disney Hall, and was also performed by the San Francisco Symphony at SoundBox in a concert celebrating John Adams’s 70th birthday.

Silver Threads was featured on Q2’s “Best of 2014: New Music” show at the Greene Space. The album has also received some end-of-the-year love from NewMusicBox and WNYC, and we had a couple great performances of the cycle at Portland’s 3rd Angle.

ToxicPsalms
The Carmina Slovenica Choir performed Stabat Mater Dolorosa as part of their show Toxic Psalms on the 2015 Prototype Festival in New York. The Slovenian group had previously performed my work a bunch abroad, and it was a thrill to finally get to hear them live. See the New Yorker preview, and the Times preview and review.
