Well- the website here turned into all-out CD marketing, the last couple months, and accordingly has been very quiet. But with a new year it’s time to look ahead to what’s in store, Lord willing:

  • A new website, planned for February launch.
  • A large slate of commissions, including one setting of a hymn of JFK’s funeral (to be premiered at the Kennedy Center in a concert in honor of JFK), one to be premiered in England, and one that will be my largest commission yet (more details once it’s official).
  • Residencies/appearances/performances with the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, Tennessee Tech University, a concert at the Lincoln Center, a (tentative) trip to Ireland, and a couple weeks in California in residency at two universities.
  • Several pieces going into print, including the first installment of a new cycle of American Folk Songs that I’m writing, published in a new series with Hinshaw Music.
  • A Basque Lullaby (wind band version) has been selected for  Texas All-State. (When it comes to all-state, it doesn’t get any bigger than Texas.) 🙂
More details on all these will be forthcoming. I’m grateful for God’s grace shown to me in countless ways in 2011, and looking forward to 2012.        ~Not unto us, O Lord, but to your name be the glory.~ Psalm 115:1
