2016’s Thanks and Reflections

This year taught me about how necessary and fun it is to work with other people. From planning performances of I Was On the Side of the Highway with Annie Lyle Mason to starting All Score Urbana with Standard Rep Bassoon Quartet and Molly O’Roark getting my back, all of these interactions reminded me that creativity thrives with the intelligence, sensitivity, and compassion of others. (Check out some of this year’s pieces and performances above).

I had the opportunity to do music around the US, as well as Scotland, this year with a number of really encouraging people. I want to acknowledge them:

I also want to thank organizations and ensembles that made a big difference for me this year:

As this new year starts, I hope to keep these collaborative fires goings and finding new ways to support other people, their safety and expression. A big thanks to The Rogue Trio and Sonny Oram from Qwear for being part of this conversation and its many variations this year.
