The Season Ahead

Dear Friends,

Hope all is well! I’m really excited to share what’s coming up this year.

Last season was really fun and wild—it featured the premiere of Liminal Highwaya sprawling work for flute and electronics at Miller Theatre; Goldbeater’s Skin for percussion quartet and mezzo-soprano at Notre Dame; and Will There Be Singing (called “a stunning new piece by the LA Times) with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. It also heard the first workshops of In a Grove, a new opera in progress heard at the Mahogany Opera Group’s Various Stages Festival in London. And last but not least, I was also honored with a portrait concert with the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble (and received a glowing review in the Post-Gazette)—where 7 of my works were performed for two nights.

This season promises to be equally busy: it features premieres with the Calder Quartet in a concert hosted by the LA Phil in December; a portrait concert at Miller Theatre with Third Coast Percussion in March (featuring a new piece for the quartet); a brand new violin concerto for Jennifer Koh and the Detroit Symphony in May; as well as concerts in Poland, Spain, Italy, at the Kennedy Center, and more.

This coming weekend, I head to Michigan where I’ll be splitting time between Michigan State (where I will be coaching students on a full concert of my work) and hopping to Detroit, where Latitude 49 and Vicky Chow will be playing my works at the Strange Beautiful Music X Festival, hosted by New Music Detroit.

There’s lots more happening this year, and I invite you to check out the rest of my season.

Thanks for reading and see you soon,
Chris
