Also on this CD are works by Peter Hope, Gernot Wolfgang, Michael Head, and Bill Douglas.

Graduated!

I'm very excited to announce that I've finished my 500 hour yoga teacher training! This was a great journey and I'm enjoying teaching lots of yoga (when I'm not writing music!) Come take a class with me!

(Here I am with my fellow yoga teacher graduates - Kristen and Simon, and Cindy, one of our teachers, in the middle!)

"Love Songs" for Soprano and Oboe

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.
