Upcoming

I have been appointed to composition and harp faculty at Lutheran Summer Music. Apply here!
This April I will be competing in the semifinal round of the World Harp Competition held in Utrecht, NL! My program, “Cosmic Fragments: Words and Music about Life, the Universe, and Everything” grapples with the most profound aspects of existence, presenting as many characters of the contemporary harp as it does insights into humanity’s miraculous, impermanent appearance in the cosmos. Watch my video submission for the quarterfinal round here.
