New Events

I have added several events to my calendar:

  • February 5 – Centennial Celebration in St. George with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
  • February 6 – Music and the Spoken Word
  • April 12 – BYU Brass Chamber Night
  • June 20-27 – 2011 Eastern US Tour with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir


Updated Location – Brass Chamber Night

The Brass Chamber Night on December 9th has been relocated to the UPC Building. That is the University Parkway Building located on the Northeast corner of University Parkway and University Avenue. Note the change and come enjoy an evening of brass music!

Premiere of “Aase’s Tod”

My trombone choir arrangement of “Aase’s Tod” from Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 will be premiered by the BYU Trombone Choir on November 13, 2010. The piece has ten parts divided into two five-piece choirs that showcase the sadness and intensity of this beautiful music.

The concert is free, so I hope to see you there.

New Project, New Event

I have added a new project and a new event:

  • Scale Studies Book
  • Trombone Choir Performance

Check out the Projects/Events page for details.

Hired at BYU!

This has been on the burner for a while, but since I have started working, I can announce that I have been hired as an Adjunct Professor of Trombone at Brigham Young University. My duties are very similar to those I was doing as a graduate student–namely teaching non-major lessons and coaching brass chamber ensembles–but it is very satisfying having gone through an application process and been accepted as a bona-fide faculty member.

Adjunct positions are of course the bottom of the totem and by definition short term, but it is a position for which I am grateful. Thanks to Dr. Kimball and the BYU School of Music for the opportunity.
