If you know about additional performances, drop me an email and I'll post the info and links here!

 

___________________________

A composer's work is purely abstract without musicians bringing it to life. I'm grateful to the many musicians around the world who have put their time, energy and heart into bringing my notes into the air, and to the ears of audiences!
