Hello, and thanks for the visit;

I have been a part of the arts in Canada and much further abroad for the past 40 plus years. I continue my work as a composer, musician, arranger, music director, conductor, playwright, artistic director, and record producer.

Here are some things that I am working on right now.

Hail Gaia-A commission from Pauline Le Bel. This work is scored for mixed voices, mezzo-Soprano piano and cello.

The Five Seasons, a postmodern oratorio, will receive its premiere performances in Vancouver in April 2020. This work was made possible by a generous gift from Haida artist, poet, singer, Robert Davidson and a grant from the Music Division of the Canada Council.

A Road Story-A full-length play commissioned by The Canada Council Creative Writing division. This work is ready for rehearsal.

I begin a new season with the Sooke Community Choir (sookecommunitychoir.com)in September 2019.

Thanks for the visit. Much appreciated.
