2017-2018 Performance Projects
Hari Om for Soprano Saxophone and electronics
This was a collaboration with composer Jonathan Annis to bring forward a new piece for saxophone and electronic music connecting the possibilities of processed sounds with those of the live saxophonist using eastern influences. Since giving the world premiere performance at the North American Saxophone Alliance conference at the CCM in Cincinnati Ohio, Hari Om has been performed around United States, Canada, and will be performed at the 2018 World Saxophone Congress in Zagreb Croatia. I am beyond honored to have this piece written for me and it being shared with so many saxophonists across the world.

Fanfare for Wind Ensemble Commission
After working with composer Jonathan Annis on Hari Om, I asked him if he would be interested in composing a full band piece in dedication to both the Coffeyville Community College and Field Kindley High School Wind Ensembles for our joint concert this past Spring. He happily obliged and the result was an outstanding piece of music unlike any the students had performed before. This piece, along with Hari Om, will soon be available on the composer's website linked above.
