On May 28, 2020, violinist Monica Davis gives a digital premiere to my new piece for solo violin, Ribbon. Meeting Monica has been a bright spot in the midst of this solitary quarantine life.
The introduction and opportunity came through the creative thinking and swift action of composer Gabriela Lena Frank, who paired past composer fellows from her Creative Academy of Music like myself with musicians who lost work due to the pandemic. The result is a weekly concert of brand new music called #GLFCAMGigThruCOVID. You can read the SF Chronicle’s reporting on the initiative here, and if you feel moved to donate to enable more matches to be made, find out all about that here. And here’s the series calendar where you can find all the other premieres.
Hope you enjoy!
