Doing some conducting with the Windham Orchestra over the next few weeks. Beating them into shape to play the Stravinsky Concerto in D and the 1919 Firebird suite. Very exciting, very fun, brilliant music, and wonderful people to work with.
Front Page News
I, along with the Windham Orchestra and our bench-makers (The Harmonic Forge), am the front page of the Brattleboro Reformer today, pushing the VY protesters to the side slightly on their big day. My big days with Music for Windham are tomorrow (Thursday, 3/22/2012) for the children’s concert and Sunday (3/25/2012, 3:00PM) at the Latchis Theatre in downtown Brattleboro, VT.
Music for Windham
The Windham Orchestra is about to perform a work I’ve very recently created for them involving the whole of the community around them, from school children to new musical park benches.

Discovered this today, and am piecing together proposal ideas for next year. Maybe something for the JACK Quartet, or another huge piano piece, much like Rzewski’s The Road, but The Ice Shelf.
The Violin Sonata is coming along very nicely, despite massive setbacks. The first two movements are done, minus editing, and the remainder of the piece is in contemplation.
Finished Beatus Vir, the 10-hour epic for two pianos, and am now seeking out a venue in the Boston area that has two pianos and will let me have it for long enough to play the entire piece.
Hybrid Groove Project is an incredibly hip new music ensemble, based outta Baltimore. Their “Anthem,” the first track that comes up on their front page, is a great run through the new music scene.
