New Choral Anthem: "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven" 

I'm very happy to announce the release of "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven" from Chorister's Guild! For SATB and piano, I composed this anthem for a consortium of 10 churches a couple years back, and I was quite pleased with how it turned out, and was thrilled when CG accepted it for publication. They give the following description:

Hot off the Press! "How Deep the Father's Love for Us" for Solo Piano 

I've completed a solo piano setting of "How Deep the Father's Love For Us," by Stuart Townend. I wanted to create a stark, contemplative setting of Townend's hymn, appropriate for Lent, Lord's Supper/Communion, prayer and meditation.

Two New Releases from Lorenz Music 

I am thrilled to announce the release of two of my works from Lorenz Music.

"Gateway Overture" Premier and Going Home 

On Wednesday, November 6, I went back to my old junior high in the Chicago suburbs for the premier of my newest band piece, Gateway Overture. Blackhawk Middle School (Bensenville, IL) and director Mr. William Winters commissioned the piece, which included some video chats with the students in order to get to know them and the kind of piece that would most interest them. I took suggestions, listened to pieces they previously enjoyed playing, and based most of my musical decisions off of their feedback. It…

My newest band piece Gateway Overture will be premiered on November 6th at Blackhawk Middle School in Bensenville, IL. Commissioned by Blackhawk and director of bands Mr. William Winters, this piece is the culmination of several months of planning, discussion, and video chats with students (and a lot of learning on my part on writing for younger band!).

The title of the piece comes from Bensenville's motto, "Gateway to Opportunity." I'm so grateful for this opportunity, not only to write a new piece for…
