Welcome to my website! There's plenty of information about me, as well as audio tracks, videos, and links. I hope that you'll leave a message in my Guest Book, sign up for e-mail notification of upcoming appearances, and check out the calendar .If you're a composer, performer (classical, singer/songwriter, folk or rock artist, dancer, poet), or presenter looking for a collaborator, I'd especially love to hear from you! I enjoy working in a wide variety of genres and partnering with artistically like-minded individuals!
Got great news recently: My summer Sundays concert series at Old Westbury Gardens on Long island (NY) is going to be back under the venerable West Porch Beech Tree this summer - just in time for my 10th season in residence there! The opening concert - CROSS ISLAND (my duo with pianist Elinor Abrams Zayas), with clarinetist Sandy Tepper - will be July 7. Concert 2 on July 14 will be Cambiata flute and cello duo (with Pamela Sklar), with guest guitarist Mark Macarron (who was part of the first concert a decade ago); concert 3 on July 21 is a return appearance by the folk duo HUNGRYTOWN - a long-time Gardens favorite; concert 4, July 28, will be my first-ever solo concert and the release concert for my new solo CD, Semicentennial Solitaire, and will include several works written for me as part of a collaboration with Composer's Voice; and August 4 will be the final concert - a CROSS ISLAND reprise, this time with violinist Yeou-Cheng Ma. Watch this site (and especially my calendar) for details!
The collaboration with Composer's Voice will be an ongoing theme this season, with works from previous Composer's Voice collaborations on both CROSS ISLAND concerts and a work by Composer's Voice Artistic Director Douglas DaSilva on the July 14 concert, as well. if you're not familiar with them, check them out!
