So, What Else is New?

I'm excited about all the great music happening this Fall and Winter! The thing I'm most stoked about is my upcoming faculty recital at Hope College. It'll be happening in the stunning new Concert Hall at the Jack Miller Center for Musical Arts on Hope's Campus. Please put this event on your calendar: January 26,2017 at 7:30pm. It's a recital of some of my compositions for large ensembles, including the world premier of my new piece written for Hope's Orchestra, "July Nocturne." Also, "For One Removed," for choir and percussion ensemble. My son, Stephen, will be singing with Hope's Chapel Choir for this one! Plus, a piece for hope's Jazz Arts Collective, and some pieces for big band, performed by the Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra. Gonna be quite a production!
