COLLABORATION CREATIVITY COMMUNITY
These ideas are important to shaping me as a performer and a human being, so my mission statement as an artist is always to focus on finding ways to bridge these ideas through positive outreach, engaging with composers, musicians, and non-musicians alike, and getting involved in or creating social projects where people from all walks of life can freely contribute towards a cause or causes that aids people/organizations.
New Commission/Consortium Projects (Summer/Fall of 2018)
This coming fall I have had the privilege to be a part of consortium's by international marimba soloist Keiko Abe for her new solo marimba piece The Song of Trees (2017) and legendary contemporary composer James Wood with his new duo/quartet Kalavinka (2017). It gives me great pleasure to announce my upcoming commission projects for 2018 with Yale composer Nate May,and Princeton composers Andrea Mazzanario and Dave Molk, to commission new works for percussion solo and duo.
