Fresh for this first quarter of 2014, U.S. and U.K. premiers of Cry of the Queenless King are in preparation. Still working out the exact dates. Completion of Mis-Treatment of the Honorable took place this week. Composed for the FAQtet Ensemble as part of my 2014-2015 composer residency with the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, it will premier in April.

Just today, I’ve completed Theme from the Motion Picture: It Happened in January, for solo horn and piano. Meghan Phadke will premier this in May as part of her horn recital. It’s a great piece.

I’ve accepted the role as composer and music director for Cynthia Hardeman’s first play, Truth Stands, which will premier February 2015. Hip-Hop flavor coming!!
I’m really excited that I get to make some BEATS again!!!!! Wow!!!

The producer itch beckons my attention once again; I will begin work with Eddie Moore and the Outer Circle on their second album this spring. I’m also composing some new vibes for the band.

Other compositions in progress include 3 new chamber works, and a large ensemble work that I hope will be a kick-ass wind band work.
