Time & Memory - a recording project

"Time and Memory" is a new recording project of my music for solo voice and piano. The pieces in this recording celebrate the works of five American poets, including living poet and former NEA chairman Dana Gioia, Pennsylvania native William S. Trout, and 19th-century masters Ralph Waldo Emerson, Herman Melville and Theodore O'Hara. "Battle Songs," a set of war poems includes the popular "In Flanders Fields" by Canadian poet John McCrae.

Assembled for this project are some extraordinary musicians who dedicate so much of their work to the performance of new music. Recording sessions are taking place in the Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall of The Peabody Instute in Baltimore, MD, and I am very excited to have Ed Tetrault on board as the audio engineer for this project. We are currently on track to complete the recording process in May 2016. I am very grateful to have amazing performers partnering with me.
