Dear March, Come In!

March is an exciting month this year, especially for a couple of my compositions. The best part is I get to travel and perform!

"Mangosteen" is having an especially good month. It is finally published by Clear Note Publications. You can buy a copy at Carere Music here in Atlanta or you can buy it online at Some copies have already been sold at the Georgia Guitar Symposium in Columbus, GA. I am also going to perform the work again on March 20 at 3pm with guitarist Irvin Kauffman at the International Festival of Women Composers at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I am looking forward to hearing alot of great works performed and learning about new pieces in the lectures from the 18-20th. And hopefully I'll get to visit some with the in-laws.

"Smorgasbord" is being performed today in Paris, France by James Strauss at Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot. I wish I could be there, but the finances just wouldn't allow it. I hope he is able to get a recording of it. It would be nice to hear someone else perform it for a change.

Last, but not least, I'll be performing with Mercury Season on March 17 at Georgia Perimeter College Dunwoody Campus at 1pm. We will be performing music from Ireland. The concert will include my arrangements of "Brian Borus March", "Irish Confetti", and "Molly on the Shore".

March is a busy month, but should also be a blast. Anytime I get to travel is a good time. I've already been to Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Columbus,GA, and Savannah, GA this year. We'll be making it out to Boston for a wedding and hopefully a concert in June. Should be an exciting year!
