It’s been an honor and a pleasure to collaborate with the Donald Sinta Quartet over the past four years! I can’t thank them enough for all of their support, as well as their passion and enthusiasm for my music.
Their album ‘Ex Machina’ released this past weekend and features my piece Volcanic Ash (the album released exactly three years after I first completed the piece!). When I was writing the piece in 2017 I had no idea that it would take me where it has – with performances at concerts and festivals around the world, including this performance at the 2019 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic.
I’m humbled and grateful for the piece’s success and feel indebted to the Donald Sinta Quartet for their advocacy and for inspiring me to write the piece in the first place. Be sure to check out their extraordinary recording of the piece on ‘Ex Machina’!
