World of Warcraft Suite

It’s been too long since I last worked with the wonderful Videri String Quartet. Over the summer, Rosie Samter asked if I’d like to arrange two new pieces from World of Warcraft. A number of years ago I arranged the piece “Invincible”, and Rosie suggested I add two more pieces to create a suite. As a long time fan of the game and its beautifully immersive score, I immediately said yes. Videri will soon be performing this suite, along with other game arrangements and works by Schubert and Ravel. If you’re in CT, consider attending! You can find out more here.

Różowa Magia

I want to share the premiere recording of my recent vocal trio, “Różowa Magia (Pink Magic)”, written for Cincinnati Soundbox and performed by Jackie Stevens, Lauren McAllister, and Ellen Graham. It was my first time setting Polish, which is something I’ve wanted to do since moving to Warsaw. The singers did a beautiful job learning both the piece and the the text, and I’m grateful that they brought the piece to life so thoughtfully.

CityBeat Talks With Composers of “Parallels” Project

Anne Arenstein recently interviewed all composers involved in the “Parallels” project, a set of five commissions by composers from the US and Poland. Two performances will be held – one in Cincinnati, OH, and one in Warsaw, Poland. It was a pleasure corresponding with Ms. Arenstein, as she asked thoughtful questions about my work and my piece, and put together a wonderful article. You can read the article in full here.
