"On Holt Avenue" now published by Imagine Music

On Holt Avenue for oboe and piano is now published by Imagine Music!  This work depicts daily life on the street where I used to live in Los Angeles, from the mockingbird that sang (screamed, really) at all hours of the day and night, to the view outside my window at the neighbor's lemon tree.  Four movements.

Listen to Movement Four "Daisies" from my CD Songs of California: Music for Winds and Piano performed by Ryan Zwahlen-oboe, and Kanae Matsumoto,piano.

"Love Songs" for Soprano and Oboe

This work was just performed during the International Double Reed Society Conference at NYU in August 2014.

Love Songs for soprano and oboe was commissioned by oboist Aryn Day Sweeney.  The texts - translations of Native American words - I chose to tell a story of the Native American woman – a story that she might tell to her child while she rocked the child to sleep. It is a story that I feel can be universally understood, but points to the strength of not only the Native American woman, but to the strength of all women to persevere, to raise children and to keep community strong against all odds.  It is a “love song” in that it goes beyond just romantic love, but tells of love for a child and love of the land.  

This work was premiered at Ball State University by Aryn Day Sweeney-oboe and Yoko Shimazaki-Kilburn-soprano in March 2014.
