I have tried blogging on numerous occasions. None have ever really been successful, or regular. I think this will be another attempt to give at least semi-occasional updates on my life and music.
I have recently moved to Tucson, Arizona where I am studying at the University of Arizona and trying to compose as much as possible. Most recent completed compositions are a 5 movement suite for unaccompanied bassoon and a 1 movement work for unaccompanied violin.
The violin piece was commissioned by violinist Katherine Rinderknecht along with, I believe, four other pieces by four other composers. The premiere is planned for January 2016 in Norman, Oklahoma at the University of Oklahoma.
Life is busy with school and work. But I continue to live each day as best as possible and keep smiling.
I'm a composer, but when it comes to writing words... That isn't exactly my strong suit. I have tried on numerous occasions to blog, but it never really lasts. I guess this will be another attempt.
