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.

Working away on the second draft of a new play commissioned by The Canada Council for the Arts, titled: A Road Story

Still working on securing a  production of my full-length concert work for mixed voices and instrumental ensemble titled: The Five Seasons. 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.

I’m well into rehearsal conducting The Sooke Community Choir’s May concerts we are calling Hits!. (sookecommunitychoir.com)

Thanks for the visit. Much appreciated.
