A Golden Day

A Golden Day was commissioned by the Eastern Arizona College Women's Chorale and their director, Chase Moore (one of my former graduate students at EKU). I had the privilege to visit Arizona and work with the choir in March 2020, the very week that the world was shutting down... The piece finally received its premiere in the spring of 2022.

Lexington premiere of "The Courage for Love"

I am honored to have the opportunity to conduct the Lexington premiere of my extended work The Courage for Love with the Kentucky Bach Choir this Sunday, March 3 at 7:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church (174 N. Mill Street). Originally scored for choir, soloists, and chamber orchestra, this performance features a new instrumentation for string quintet and piano. Click here to listen to a recent interview about the piece on WEKU.

The program also includes five chorales to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the first performance of J. S. Bach's St. John Passion, plus other shorter pieces contemplating themes of love and sacrifice by Jacobus Gallus Handl, John Ireland, W. A. Mozart, and Maurice DuruflĂ©.
