News and Upcoming Events


September, 2016 Fall Events

This fall is full of exciting performances and events, including a premiere with my friends in the Spektral Quartet as part of Chicago's Ear Taxi Festival and a concert I helped curate featuring new works by Katherine Young and Kyle Vegter of Manual Cinema. I've also helped put together a concert at the Harris Theater celebrating Steve Reich's 80th birthday. I'm especially excited that we'll be featuring musicians from Northwestern University as guest artists. Then, in December, Emanuel Ax will premiere three new works I wrote for him alongside the music of Franz Schubert.
