First Time Down Under

It’s the first time my music will be performed in Australia: “Where the Bee Sucks”  from my “Ariel Songs” will be part of a program on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” to be held at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia, on Friday, August 10. Gillian Dooley will sing, with Fiona McCauley at the piano. Read more about the program here; there will be lots of interesting talks, dramatic readings and musical settings of texts from the play.

Ariel Songs was recently premiered in its piano and voice version on a Network for New Music concert in Philadelphia.

The original version of the piece, for voice and early instruments, is on the audio samples page of my website,, and the CD from which the recording comes is available here.
