August 3, 2018 - The Clarosa Quartet gave a stunning performance this evening of the premiere of my new piano quartet Vasilissa the Invincible at the Kingston Chamber Music Festival. Huge thanks to the Quartet and to Festival Director Natalie Zhu and to everyone on the board of the Festival for making this happen!

July 20, 2018 - I am honored to have been awarded the Edward T. Cone Fellowship in Music from the Bogliasco Foundation in Italy. I will be in residence at the Foundation in April and May 2019.

May 20, 2018 - Violist-composer Kurt Rohde and pianist-composer Jared Redmond gave the premiere of my work Contemplation on Vanessa in the Boneset this past weekend in a series of concerts in the Bay Area full of great new music for viola. I was fortunate enough to catch the Berkeley concert this afternoon — so glad to be on the program with these fantastic composers and performers!

April 5, 2018 - I'm thrilled to share the exciting news that I have received a Fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. My thanks to the Foundation, and to the administration at Illinois State University, who have agreed to let me take a leave of absence during my Fellowship year, which begins this fall. Many congratulations, too, to the other very deserving composers who received Guggenheim Fellowships this year!
