Viral Cancellations

It will come as no surprise that performances of my music are being affected by the present crisis. My Variations on a Hymn Tune was to have been performed by the Delaware all-state high school orchestra March 14, but the illness of the conductor preparing the work means it will be delayed until next year. The entire Bach Festival of the Riemenschneider Bach Institute at Baldwin-Wallace University in Berea, OH has been cancelled. It would have included the April 24 premiere of the work they commissioned from me, a Fantasy-Partita on “Von Gott will ich nicht lassen” for chorus and string quartet. I am told the hope is to reschedule the Festival for this fall. And I think the March 29 performance of my Mass for the Day of St. Thomas Didymus at Emmanuel Church is by no means certain, though no decision has yet been made on that. I’ll let you know when I get definite word.

UPDATE: not only has the performance of my Mass at Emmanuel been canceled, but all worship services at the church have been cancelled through April 5 at least.

Good wishes for the safety and health of all my readers.
