Yesterday afternoon, I received an email from Gilda Lyons, the founder and Artistic Director of The Phoenix Concerts asking if I would like to a) perform one of my short songs and b) write a new short song for a a concert she’s scheduled for March 2011 celebrating composers who have attended the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Of course I said yes!

Gilda is a great composer herself, and she does a wonderful job running The Phoenix Concerts, which are always interesting and of the highest caliber. I’m really looking forward to writing for her series, as well as performing again with my good friend Rob Frankenberry!
