So, I’m a little behind in posting my rejections and acceptances. Case in point:
I had to dig through my email; this was dated June 17, 2017. Whoops.
Anyway, I had a fantastic time, my players rocked my piece, and I made some new friends.
Stay tuned for more rejections later; I promise they’re coming.
So, it’s nice to know that on occasion some random strangers like my music enough (or fits into their programming enough) to force a group of instrumentalists in an ensemble called an orchestra to play new music.
The Ferry Crossing will have its Midwest premiere as part of the 2017 TUTTI Festival at Denison University on Thursday, February 9 at 7 p.m. In fact, I will be on the same program as Augusta Reed Thomas (since she’s their guest composer). Chances are, she probably doesn’t remember me.
