This past year has been a busy one! There have been a number of great events at Troy University, in addition to a few conference performances/presentation with Sources Duo.

Happy first day of fall! It doesn't feel like fall here in southeastern Alabama - it seems like the temperature will never go down! My calendar tells a different story though, with several upcoming performances and projects. When I posted a few months ago, I had just started The E-flat Clarinet Project.

Today and tomorrow morning are full of sound checks for Bang on a Can's Summer Festival Marathon tomorrow. We will be playing for 6+ hours starting at 4pm. There has been so much music every day that I think we are prepared for it! Tonight I'll be in one last pre-marathon concert: premiering short works… Continue reading Almost done!
We're starting to check some pieces off our performances lists as the concerts pick up at Bang on a Can! I loves performing Phillip Sink's Particulates in the Artists Choice gallery yesterday.
