I recently returned from an amazing 10-day workshop with Richard Armstrong in Banff. The International Voice Workshops have been running at the Banff Centre for many many years. The last time I attended was in 2001, then worked privately with Richard in NYC in 2002, then he & I kept missing each other through my travels.
My piece “interchange” has been chosen as one of the pieces on the 60×60 Canadian Concert Mix this year. Below is a list of composers and upcoming performances. Continue reading

I have finally bought myself a keyboard! It is, as the title says, a Yamaha DGX 620 and it is a lovely thing. A picture and specs can be found here.
