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).

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:
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.
Thanks to Thompson Street Opera Company for a great performance of “Ile” this weekend!
Tune in today at noon to hear Ben Smith, Eric Lindsay, and me on WFIU talk about our upcoming premieres with the New Voices Opera!
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!
