This has been my biggest and most important piece as of yet, as it reflects on the still very palpable American tragedies that occurred in 2016. Each movement of the text, beautifully written by Nova-member Sharon Goldstein, is dedicated to an American tragedy that occurred in 2016: specifically the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in July of 2016, the Dallas Police shootings in July of 2016, and the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting in June of 2016. The song cycle as a whole is an attempt to remember these and all victims of violence, while calling for the community to come together and overcome hatred with a unified love.

I am excited to share that my original score to the first Felix the Cat cartoon “Feline Follies” will be performed by a live orchestra, as part of the The Sound of Silents fundraiser concert for Vineyard Touring Opera Company. My score includes lots of “cat” orchestral sounds, including pizzicato strings and woodwind trills galore.
It will be an amazing evening full of music, film, schmoozing, beautiful views of LA at night, and light refreshments.
Tickets may be purchased here.
For a preview of the event, here is an orchestral mock-up of “Feline Follies” with my original score:
