Dear everybody,

This is it. I’m almost done with graduate school, and this concert is going to help me go out with a bang.

I wanted to invite you to my graduate composition recital on the evening of Thursday, May 15, at 8pm in the Recital Hall at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. It is proving to be a formidable program! There will be chamber music, art songs, and a chamber orchestra as the primary event. There will even be a choir, directed by yours truly!

Three pieces were the direct result of GCG Projects, which makes this recital pretty special if you’re still learning about what we’ve done in the past. Let me tell you, it’s varied…

Performers and pieces include: the International Low Brass Trio, Jarring Sounds, The Bog Bodies, Chelsea Hollow and Sophie Xuefei Zhang, and then finally Danielle Reuter-Harrah and Tyler Catlin leading a chamber orchestra featuring my Dickinson song cycle. Then, to finish off the night, will be my choral piece and of course a wonderful reception.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all there! Coming up next will be posts about Phonochrome
