MY REEMERGENCE

Something new for me — a special event

On April 14, I’ll reemerge as a composer, with an evening of my work at Strathmore, the big performing arts center just north of Washington, DC.

The concert will be friendly — it’s at the Mansion, Strathmore’s intimate space — but with great focus on the music. I’ll be the host, welcoming everyone and introducing my work.

Of course the show will be recorded (audio and video). And I’ll add more details to this page. Watch this space! Or join my mailing list for the show. (If you do, I’d love to know if you’re in the DC area or elsewhere.)

Tickets are on sale. You can buy them now
