The Jerome Fund for New Music (JFund)
I’m thrilled to announce that I have been awarded the Jerome Foundation Commissioning Grant from the American Composers Forum. My new piece “Breathe” written for 2 pianos, electronics and spoken narration, will be premiered by Isabelle ‘Izzy’ O’Connell and Kathleen Supove in New York City on the 26th of January, 2017. Because of this grant, I will be traveling to South Africa sometime after New Year’s to interview my good friend Alice, as she talks about her life and experience with Cystic Fibrosis. I’ve also spent time talking with professionals from the CF Trust in the UK, so the research so far is quite insightful and humbling.
