Chatter, Hopewell, and Rabbit Tales

It's been an amazing month to say the least. The premiere of "Rabbit Tales" had over 400 people in attendance. "Rabbit Tales" is expected to be performed over 50 times by the end of the 2011-2012 season.

"Chatter" has also been performed twice this month by two different duos. Another big thanks to the Dahlia Flute Duo who have really championed this piece for me, and performed it again at the Rochester Flute Fair. I would also like to thank Danielle Spaeth and Caylee Wells who performed "Chatter" for Danielle's graduate recital at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Anxiously waiting the recording :)

"Hopewell" will be performed on Tuesday at Winthrop University by the University's Symphonic Band under the direction of Catharine Bushman in Rock Hill, SC. This is Catharine's first concert as assistant band director at Winthrop University. Her doctorate is "in the mail". I am so excited to be a part of this concert!

That's it for now. I have three future commissions on the table in negotiations. We'll see if any of them shake down. It's been an exciting year, and it looks like next year I will continue in furiously composing (God willing).
