It's a busy season for me, with a wide range of things going on. Upcoming performances on the North American side of the world include performances of my arrangements of 'Oh Shenandoah' and 'Amazing Grace' by Cantabile Chamber Singers in Toronto, 'Charlie is my Darling' by the mixed varsity chorale of Taylor High School in Katy, TX (my first performance by a high school ensemble) and the premiere of my 'Ave Rosa, Sine Spinis' by Nova Vocal Ensemble in Glendale, California.
I've also got two new recordings in the queue for release - my Christmas carol 'Brightest and Best' was recently recorded by Manchester-based ensemble Kantos and conductor Ellie Slorach, to be released in December on Prima Facie's new record 'The Silver Stars at Play', including carols by a wide variety of other distinguished living composers. The record will be officially released in concert in Manchester on 16 December. Additionally, production is beginning on the Cambridge Chorale's album of Marian works, including my commission 'Mater Dei', among works by Pawel Lukaszewski, Owain Park and others.
'Brightest and Best' has additionally been accepted for publication by GIA Publications and editor Dr. James Jordan of Westminster Choir College, which will be my first professional publication.
