Come see the first piano-vocal workshop performance of my new opera, The Harvester. One half of an evening-length production being spearheaded by soprano Stacie Dunlop, The Harvester is based on Paul Van Dyck’s tragic sci-fi play of the same name. It tells the story of a man living in a dystopian future where people live forever but at great cost to the environment. When a long-lost family member finds the man, alone in his bunker, she forces him to question the importance of immortality and whether or not his long and solitary life has been lived in vain.

The Coterie premières a new piece of mine, for soprano, piano, violin, and cello, written in collaboration with librettist/songwriter Royce Vavrek. Set in a frenetic style, this piece is a manic exploration of mismatched relationship expectations.
