Strange Dreams: A Faculty Composition & Chamber Recital

It is a little odd that the only local performances I seem to do are church timpani gigs and extra percussionist gigs with one of the area orchestras, yet I don't hesitate to travel to California, Utah, Pennsylvania, or Texas to give a recital, masterclass, or clinic. Rarely do I even take my marimba or vibraphone out of the house unless I'm driving at least 100-200 miles away from Greensboro. It's not like I don't have Christmas CD to promote. It's not that I don't have plenty of other repertoire to share. Is it laziness? I don't know... I think it's just easy to neglect that which is right under your nose. Those days are over.

On Tuesday, January 15, 2013 I will be giving my first faculty recital at High Point University. Seeing how I teach both music composition and percussion there, it seemed fitting (albeit a little self-serving) to perform a recital of my works. We have a wonderfully talented faculty at HPU and I am delighted to be playing with four of them in what will hopefully be the first of many future collaborations.
