This coming week, my students at University of Utah Youth Theatre's satellite in Park City will perform their musical revue. I've been working with these 8 to 11 year-old students for the past week, teaching them music from various Broadway hits. I love working with children; I find their musical potential fascinating and I think they can do wonderful work. This group of kids is no exception. Very talented, and very musical! The show is at 7:30 PM on Thursday, June 30 at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City. There will be an encore performance at Kingsbury Hall on Friday, July 1 at 7:00 PM. My sister, Georgia, and I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching this group of kids and are excited to see the culmination of all their work!

Excited to announce that the rough draft my new song cycle, "Alturas de Macchu Picchu," has been completed. After an arduous process of setting over 20 pages of text, I finally have a new piece of music of which I am very proud. Michelle and I have met to listen and discuss the music, and we are thrilled to begin the collaboration. I will continue to update you on this exciting project, and will also be updating the composition page for "Macchu Picchu." Next step is revisions and orchestration!
