June 9, 2019 8PM, Wild Beast, CalArts, Valencia, CA. FREE! Our Listen/Space Commissions book release concert on the Dogstar Orchestra 15 Festival. Over the past five summers, I’ve commissioned over 35 new works for experimental chamber ensemble and brought players and composers to our remote Utah cabin to rehearse and record. This last year Andre Cormier and I compiled the scores into 3 volumes. I’m thrilled to perform at Dog Star again and celebrate this whole project! We’ll premiere a new work for bass clarinet, bass and piano by Quentin Tolimieri and play 8 other works we’ve commissioned!

I will be playing some clarinet at the after-party July 12, but otherwise, I’ll be running around organizing the whole thing! It’s free and open to the public and epic, please come if you’re in Utah!
