My first work for saxophone ensemble (!) will be premiered at the North American Saxophone Biennial Conference in Cincinnati this March in Cincinnati. The family might have to make a road trip to get some Grady's ice cream!
The wonderful Tuyen Tonnu and Xiaorui Chu will be playing my work Gemini for two pianos in mainland China in 2018. Also will be performing it at the RedNote New Music Festival in March, 2018. The work is comprised solely of intertwining 5th cycles. They are working hard to make this piece of music come alive!
