Wow – has it been over a year since my last post? Well, that needs to change!
I am in the process of updating this website to allow for the direct sale of my scores and (soon-to-be-released) CD. I am aiming to have this all up in place by the end of April/beginning of May, so stay tuned!
This is BIG news for me! I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that my SYMPHONY NO. 1: DREAM DIALOGS has been selected to be recorded and released by Ablaze Records! The symphony will be recorded in June by the Brno Symphony Orchestra (Brno, Czech Republic), and released to the public in November on Ablaze’s “Orchestral Masters Vol. 2” album! This was all made possible by generous support from the Fresno State College of Arts and Humanities and the Department of Music.
My Symphony No. 1 was premiered last November by the Fresno State Symphony Orchestra. I wrote extensively about the creation of this work in a blog that you can read about here.
This will mark my first major recording of an orchestral work. The recording will be distributed internationally, and be available to hear via the Naxos Music Library, iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, Amazon, and all major distributors.
Needless to say – I am extremely excited for this amazing opportunity!
