My new young band pieces Scorch and Pitch Black are now available for purchase and will be displayed this week at the Millennium Composers Initiative booth at Midwest Clinic! I’m very appreciate of all the band directors and colleagues who supported this consortium last year and provided invaluable feedback and advice as I was writing the two pieces. I’m already eager to write more music for young band!
I’m excited to share this recording of Violent Shadows, performed by Evan Clifton and Yu-Lien The at Evan’s WMU Seminar Music Camp recital this July!
There are still two weeks left to join the consortium Evan and I are organizing for a bass trombone and wind ensemble (grade 4) version of this piece! Band directors and bass trombonists are both welcome to join – There’s an option for band directors to have Evan come out to perform the solo with your ensemble. The buy-in is relatively cheap and the piece will be completed and sent out by the end of December, with performance exclusivity for all of 2020.
More information about the consortium can be found here.
It’s an absolute honor to have both of my saxophone quartets added to the UIL Prescribed Music List (or, I guess, Chris Evan Haas’ saxophone quartets 🤔)! Thank you to the band directors that recommended adding these pieces to the list and best of luck to the high school students in Texas who attempt to perform either piece at Solo and Ensemble!
Just finished and sent off this piece to Jordan VanHemert and the Holland Concert Jazz Orchestra! It was such a pleasure to write this piece and I can’t wait to attend the premiere this October!!
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be offering a ‘Back to School’ 20% discount on all of the pieces on my website for the next month!
So much of my music has been used for educational purposes, from middle school bands to college chamber ensembles and everything in between, so I’m happy to provide a discount for musicians to use my pieces for those means. The sale will occur from August 15th to September 15th and will be applied to all of my self-published works.
