The American Prize

Five of my piano works are currently at semifinals stage for The American Prize in Composition (2017), in the solo instrument chamber music category (professional division).

In 2015 I was awarded Honorable Mention from The American Prize in Composition for my chamber work Theseus and the Minotaur (horn, oboe, percussion, and piano) in the chamber music category (professional division). That year my choral work Journeys to Freedom: Rännakud Vabadusse (large and small SATB choirs, children's choir, four winds, and percussion) was a finalist in the choral music category (professional division).

In 2014 several of my works were finalists for The American Prize in Composition: Pied Beauty and Reciprocity, both SATB a cappella, and Wise Words of Love for SSAA/piano, in the choral music category (professional division); and Field Report: News from Rural Oregon for clarinet and piano, and Aesop's Fables for woodwind quintet and narrator, in the chamber music category (professional division). That year two of my symphonic works reached the semifinals in the orchestral music category (professional division).

Vía Láctea

In June 2016 Vía Láctea, an opera in English with music by Rebecca Oswald and libretto by Ellen Waterston, premiered at the Tower Theatre in Bend, Oregon. Staged by OperaBend, directed by Nancy Engebretson, and conducted by Michael Gesme of the Central Oregon Symphony, all three performances were sold out. In support of my work on Vía Láctea, I was awarded a 2015 Individual Artist Fellowship award from the Oregon Arts Commission.

My recordings are available for licensing.

I am open to new music commission opportunities, and can write new music in nearly any genre. Please send me an email if you'd like to discuss your project.
