Selected as participant in Young Composer Mentor Project

I just received a phone call from composer Mark Camphouse to notify me that I was selected as one of three young composers to participate in the National Band Association’s Young Composer/Conductor Mentor Project sponsored by Bands of America. The piece that was selected for performance and review was my latest piece for wind symphony – ‘Light’.

On June 26th through 28th of this year, during the Bands of America Summer Symposium at Illinois State University, I will be joining two other composers and three conductors to have our works performed by the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America. The mentors will be David R. Holsinger, David Maslanka, and Jack Stamp. During the event, we will have lessons with each of the mentors as well as guided rehearsals with the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America and other breakout sessions. I’m rather ecstatic at the moment and cannot wait until June.
