composer, pianist, and scholar



I will be joining the Harvard Society of Fellows as a Junior Fellow in the fall of 2019.

After a sold-out premiere run at the American Repertory Theater in the fall of 2018, The Black Clown will receive its New York premiere July 24–27 at Lincoln Center’s Gerald W. Lynch Theater, as part of the 2019 Mostly Mozart Festival.

The Knoxville Symphony and the Knoxville Museum of Art have co-commissioned a new concerto to premiere in May 2020 for Grammy-nominated violinist Philippe Quint, based on the glass installation “Cycle of Life” by artist Richard Jolley.

The Knoxville Symphony will also feature Overture to Knoxville as part of the 2020 Shift Festival at the Kennedy Center, Washington DC.
