"During the last 5 years I've been honored to conduct performances of my jazz orchestra compositions in Iceland, Norway, Peru,Brazil and Denver. I am really looking forward to sharing this work so much closer to home, and with such an elite roster of musicians! We will present the world premeire performance of my composition the "Lovely Silver Goddess" alongside pieces written over the last two decades. A nice mix of old, recent and brand spanking new."
