Commissioned by Drew Crane - New Work for piano and chamber orchestra

I'm excited to announce that Drew Crane, pianist and conductor, has commissioned me a new work for piano and chamber orchestra for performance in Spring 2019. The work is to be 15-20' long and is for Drew to conduct while playing.

Drew and I have shared a very fruitful collaboration spanning several years since we met as freshmen at the University of Tulsa. While trading performance duties on each others' works and sharing jazz improvisations and chamber music, we also shared an apartment and parentage duties of our cat, Caroline. Drew is an incredible artist with an extremely nuanced musical imagination, and I'm thrilled to revive our collaboration.
