Goodbye Summer 2017!
Writing my end of summer newsletter was tough! It meant the end of beach days and long runs through our new neighborhood, but it was also fun to reflect on the momentum that the low-stress schedule provided. Travels took me to Indiana to teach at Yamaha's Music for All Summer Symposium and to London to perform at the i = u festival. I was able to transform the Beat Bus project with the support from New England Foundation for the Arts, and worked closely with the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to create two Open Studio sessions inviting the visitors to compose music.
Now, energy is set on a huge fall schedule with Masary Studios, a residency with Kalos, and personnel expansions for Kadence Arts. I've spent the last two weeks writing music for Harsh is Truth, our commission for HUBweek's Immersion Festival, and will focus on composing for the next week before practice sessions, meetings with choreographers, rehearsals, tech meetings, etc... begin. Can't wait to see this new work come to life!
