A new choral work, and “best-of” list!

I’m delighted to announce that I just received a commission from The Crossing, a fantastic professional chamber choir based in Philadelphia.  I was one of three composers chosen to create a new work for the group, to be premiered next June at the Crane Arts Center in Philadelphia, in their exquisite Icebox performance space.  This project is exciting for me for a number of reasons.  First, it will be another collaboration with James Pritchett, who will create a text for me.  Second, the Icebox space has an amazing,  utterly beautifully reverberant acoustic, which I find uniquely inspiring.  And finally, its a chance to write for a really magnificent ensemble, and to further explore the fascinating world of choral music.

In other news, my CD In the library of dreams, available on the Pogus Productions label, was selected as Best Modern Classical Album, New Music, at Gapplegate Music Review!
