Live from The Space Upstairs, Pitts. PA 2018

Perhaps the quintessential 80’s digital synthesizer keyboard, the Yamaha DX7 (II) has been my go-to instrument. I guess to me it feels like a totally customizable pipe organ, sans pedalboard. Here’s a snippet from the set closer:
Also, my paintings are being featured in an upcoming pop-up event, Dia de Los Muertos in the Here & Now, Nov 2 for First Fridays at Irma Freeman Center For Imagination. Opening reception 7-10PM. I have 3 full-sized doors and maybe a rainstick gets thrown into the mix.

As the fall choir season begins at CCAC and Oakmont UMC, I find myself still searching for repertoire that will make the groups shine. And it’s already time to pick holiday music!
If you are looking for choral music for your group, or know someone who would be interested, you should check out my choral music at the bottom of my Music page. My scores are all free of charge, but do let me know if you are performing something.
