Every aspect of this festival was so well-organized and encouraging and I am deeply grateful to all of the wonderful composers, musicians, clinicians, and organizers, who made this one of the highlights of my summer!
Below are a few videos and recordings of my pieces included in the festival.
"Ricercar" and "II. The Flood" from Chamber Symphony 'Beams of Heaven'
Originally submitted for the orchestral readings, these two movements from my in progress chamber symphony were selected to be premiered with the American Modern Orchestra and directed by Martim Sousa Tavares.
These three movements from my ongoing series were composed for the American Modern Ensemble. They are part of a larger set of Klee settings (Gallery II). The world premiere was conducted by Lauren Tian.
