AndersenOrchestralRehearsal.JPG

Greetings from Basel, Switzerland! I am in the midst of rehearsals for my first opera Andersens Erzählungen for Theater Basel. We had the first orchestral rehearsal on Saturday and I could not be more excited for this production! Working with a group of incredible opera singers has been a dream come true, a dream I never even knew I had! The whole team, from the director, Phillip Stölzl, to the ensemble, Basel Sinfonietta, is super talented and a real pleasure to work with. I cannot wait to share this project with the world.

The Premiere is Friday, Saturday 27, with performances through January 25, 2020.

BALLET ANNOUNCEMENT

LOCALLY SOURCED
Premiere: Thursday, November 8 -- McCaw Hall in Seattle, WA

I am honored to have been asked to write a new piece for the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle. When I used to live in Seattle, I passed by the McCaw Hall frequently, never ever imagining that my music would someday echo through the halls. Well, one of the PNB dancers, Miles Pertl, reached out to me and asked if I would write new music for a project he was creating for the ballet. I was stoked and could not say no. I have written some new music and will be re-orchestrating a few of my other works for this ballet.

The Premiere is Nov 8 and there will be performances through Nov 18.

SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT

Saturday, November 23 -- Union Chapel in London, England

Since I will be in London working on The Ocean at the End of the Lane at the National Theatre, I thought I would play a show while I am there. I am very happy to be playing the Union Chapel's Daylight Music Series again, a wonderful afternoon music program that is open to folks of all ages.
No advanced tickets, just pay-what-you-can at the door.

Show: 12:00pm - 2:00pm

OTHER NEWS

In the midst of the large-scale projects I've been working on this year, I've released four Patreon-exclusive songs so far this year. I don't have plans to release those songs outside of Patreon for the time being, so if you want to check out the new tunes and join the folks supporting my new music, head on over to the Patreon. You'll have immediate access to all of the things I've released so far.
