Posted by On Apr 02, 2015 In Concert Writings

I’ve recently changed the blog page of my website into a news bulletin, as I don’t really write that much pertaining to topics and subject matters in concert music.  This Spring I am curating with Nonclassical, called Americuration, as part of its Hackney Classical series at The Russet in Shoreditch, East London.  I am also curating with San Francisco colleague and composer Jon Russell.  I’ll have a bunch of pieces performed, with one commission from the Marsyas Trio.  Please refer here for the future concert dates at The Russet.
