IN THE NEWS:
I've launched a Patreon! I'm writing new music, you and your students and quartet and choir members want new music, and this is a great way to influence it. I call that a win-win! Join the tribe!
Hornist Howard Wall released a new recording of Appalachia on his album, Horn Monologues, Affetto/Naxos in April, and a new recording called Music for Women with violinist Elmira Darvarova and Howard Wall was released in May 2020, also on Affetto/Naxos.
Appalachia is being recreated by female powerhouses Debra Sherrill Ward, Mary Beth Orr and Sam Gowen on stage and in video.
Path and Pinnacle began pre-plague 2020 with flute, horn, and piano written for Tina Barkan's mother, Ludmilla Uhlela.
And Metalwerx continues to feature great contemporary music including Deep, at 2020 lunchtime performances.
Now it's a whole new world, and my new Patreon is heralding in a new flurry of works for all, without barriers.
