On December 16, 2018, my composition Crystal Veil Suite was aired on KMFA Classical 89.5 of Austin, Texas as part of the REVEL Radio Project's Existential Solstice concert. This concert was a collaboration between Chorus Austin and Austin's own REVEL. You can listen to the show here; Ryan Heller's introduction to Crystal Veil begins at 20:18 and the piece itself at 22:40. (I highly recommend listening to the entire hour of the show!) The performance featured Dr. Carla McElhaney, piano, Karl Mitze, viola; and members of Chorus Austin's Chamber Ensemble, vocals. All were under the direction of Ryan Heller, Artistic Director of Chorus Austin. Also featured in this performance was a wonderful piano solo entitled "Sereno," composed by Austin composer Carlos Cordero and performed by Dr. Carla McElhaney. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all involved in making this event such a success, particularly to Ryan and Carla for commissioning me to write this work!
