With the PhD over, I’m very much looking forward to getting on to some new projects in 2019. To that end, Thomas LaVoy and I are excited to announce our first joint venture - a consortium of ensembles to commission two new SATB works from us on poems by Dana Gioia, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts and poet laureate of California. I’ve set Dana’s poetry before, and he’s a formidable poet and collaborator whom we are thrilled to have onboard with the project.
The deadline to sign up is the end of June 2019, and pieces will be delivered later in the summer. For more information and to express your interest, see my dedicated page (or see Tom’s website as well).
