New York Youth Symphony’s Jazz Band Commission
Back in December, I applied for a composition competition through the New York Youth Symphony and just recently learned that I was selected!! I am commissioned by the New York Youth Symphony to write a new work for its Jazz Band Classic as part of their First Music program’s 25th season. It will receive its world premiere on May 28, 2009 at the Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York. This is a great honor! I’m really looking forward to writing for and working with this group.
