American Choral Directors’ Association 2015 in Salt Lake City

Last weekend I attended my second American Choral Directors’ Association national conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Enjoy these pictures from the conference, including: our See-a-Dot Music booth, a concert in the Mormon Tabernacle (naturally featuring the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir), our publisher reading session, and the fabulous NOTUS (from my alma mater Indiana University).

The American Piano with Kol Rina at Temple Beth Zion in Buffalo

Honored to have the opportunity to perform again at Temple Beth Zion, the congregation where I was raised, became bar mitzvah in 1999, and was confirmed in 2002. I was a guest performer on a concert featuring Kol Rina, the JCC of Greater Buffalo‘s new community choir, and over 100 people were in attendance! Photos by Cantor Penny Myers:


“The American Piano” at North Shore Congregation Israel, Chicago

What an amazing time yesterday! The debut performance of “The American Piano,” a new program celebrating the music of the great Jewish American composers of the 20th Century, was a success with over 150 people in attendance.

The concert was presented by North Shore Congregation Israel in Glencoe, Illinois, and made possible by the Marilyn and Robert Mitchell Sternberg Cultural Enrichment Fund and Cantor David Goldstein.

Radio Broadcast This Morning on WGTE with Aurea Silva Trio

With Aurea Silva Trio

Just found out that the Aurea Silva Trio will be on WGTE Radio this morning at 10 AM performing my music!  You can listen here.

The Aurea Silva Trio is an innovative chamber ensemble consisting of flute, bassoon and piano. The trio is committed to popularizing the existing pieces for this instrumentation, and are excited to commission collaborative projects with modern composers in their efforts to expand the repertoire for this ensemble.

Hope you’ll tune in with me at 10 AM Eastern!
