The Composers Now Festival celebrates living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their musical contributions to our society. During the month of February, the Festival brings together dozens of performances presented by venues, ensembles, orchestras, opera companies, dance companies and many other innovative events throughout New York City. Experience the sounds and get to know the creators behind the music. From jazz to indie, from classical to electronic and beyond, join us on a sonic journey through the landscape of the arts of our time. Composers will be in attendance at all events and will be interacting with audiences. Composers Now is a project partner of The Fund for the City of New York. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the ASCAP Foundation, the Cheswatyr Foundation and the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.


And He’ll Be Mine, arranged

Last week I finished arranging And He’ll Be Mine for Cory Davis to premiere next month at the Oklahoma Arts Institute. It was both a much harder and much easier task than I expected – I had forgotten how spare much of the cycle is, which meant working a lot harder in some sections, and breezing through others.

I’m really looking forward to having the piece performed. I’ve wanted to arrange one of my cycles for years, and I’m anxious to hear it finally done!

I don’t have the full performance details yet, so stay tuned!
