SHROUD premieres this weekend!

Shannon Wettstein and I are in Iowa City, polishing up the piano concerto SHROUD with David Gompper and his ensemble at the Center for New Music. I couldn't be more pleased with how things are faring. The performance is this Sunday, so if you're in the neighborhood, please join us!

SHROUD, April 24 at 7:30 PM, Riverside Recital Hall in Iowa City
