An Art Artistry Prize

I am honored to have recently been awarded a prize in An Art Artistry’s “The Contemporary Piano 2016” competition for my work 3 Blossoms, for solo piano. The prize comes with a performance, and audio/video recording by famed pianists Theoni Papadimitrakopoulou & Dimitris Anousis during their 2016 season in Athens, Greece.

Recordings will be shared here once they are complete. In the meantime, explore An Art Artistry’s website for more details.

Frame Dance – Houston

Earlier this year I was awarded as a winner of Frame Dance Productions 2016 Composer Competition. Through the award, I have been granted the pleasure of working with the Executive and Artistic Director of Frame Dance Productions, Lydia Hance. The work will be premiered this Saturday, May 7th, at MATCH Houston, with my music being featured in “through the sheets of clouds.”

From their website:

The world feels so big. So heavy. Branches at your head, rocks at your feet. Voices in your ear. You gawkily balance the world’s call for repair and the weight of your responsibility to others, unsure of your own sound.

“But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own”
– Mary Oliver, from The Journey
