I’m thrilled and honored to report that I've been awarded two grants in 2017. One from San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and the other from Creative Sonoma. Both are to help me produce a new CD of my compositions, as performed by my sextet Ratatet. The funds will also go towards the creation of two accompanying videos.
These grants will allow me to expand and improve my creative scope and professional profile. The CD will be entitled "Heroes, Saints and Clowns".
Thank You SFFCM and Creative Sonoma!
